Even with this price adjustment, the revenue collected on fuel is below the projected intake as announced in the 2014/2015 budget.
However, the Cabinet of Ministers has agreed to forgo the targets so as to ensure that the public can benefit from current reductions in the landed price of some petroleum products.
The next price adjustment will be due on Monday, January 12, 2015.
