Fuel prices on the rise before arrival of winter season

fuelA number of Kabul residents have complained about the escalating fuel prices before the arrival of the winter season.

The residents accused the government of failing to bring down fuel prices.

Meanwhile, government officials have promised to prevent any further hikes in fuel prices during the coming winter.

President Hamid Karzai had ordered the Ministry of Commerce last year to establish fuel reserves in an attempt to thwart abrupt jumps in fuel prices.

The ministry of commerce announced that reserves of petroleum products had now been sufficiently built up in a few provinces of Afghanistan to mitigate the problem.

Currently, a kilo of liquid gas is sold at 70 AFN. A liter of petrol costs 65 AFN, and a liter of diesel costs 66 AFN.
