Price of food goes down, fuel, gold prices up

(Pajhwok Afghan News Weekly Price Report) gas systemPrices of petroleum products, liquefied gas and gold edged up in Kabul markets during the outgoing week, when rates of rice and ghee decreased, dealers said on Thursday.

One gram of Arabian gold cost 2,200 AFN against its last week’s rate of 2,100 AFN and the same quantity of the Iranian variety priced at 1800 AFN against the previous 1700 AFN, a dealer, Abdul Basir told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Similarly, one litre of petrol was sold for 64 AFN against the last week’s price of 63 and one liter of diesel for 64 AFN against 63 AFN last week, a filling station worker at the Wazirabad area said.

A Kolola Pushta-based gas dealer Mohammad Sharif said Thursday’s price of a kilo of liquefied gas stood at 50 AFN while the same was sold for 47 AFN last week.

Both dealers linked the surge in fuel prices to cut in their imports to the country.
