Gas dealers selling gas at high prices penalized

The Pajhwok Afghan News reports that Ministry of Commerce and Industries has banned a gas company and sealed 10 gas outlets for selling gas at prices higher than 64 AFN per kilogram.

The Director of Fuel Management Department of the Ministry Eng. Ahmad Farid Sherzai said the ministry’s team sealed Nasiri’s gas importer company and 10 gas shops in Kabul for over pricing the item.

“We sealed the shops and the company for 10 days, and advised them not to sell gas at high prices. If they violate for the second time, the shop owners would be referred to the prosecution department,” he cautioned.

This action from the government comes as many of the residents in Kabul are complaining about the high fuel prices.

Earlier this month, figures showed a 30% increase in gas prices.
