NNPC also slashed the depot price of Automotive Gasoline Oil, also known as diesel, N164 per litre for ex-depots in Lagos and N166 per litre for depots in Oghara, Calabar, Port Harcourt, among others.

This was made known in a memo to oil marketers and other stakeholders in the petroleum marketing business, dated May 5, 2020, with the subject: ‘Re: PPMC Petroleum Products Prices for May 2020′.

The Petroleum Products Marketing Company (PPMC), in the memo to the marketers and stakeholders, disclosed that the new prices would take effect from May 5, 2020.

The ex-depot price is the price at which the depot owners sell the commodity to retail outlets across the country.

Though, the PPMC did not state the Expected Open Market Price of the commodity, which is the pump price of the price, but over the years, the difference between the ex-depot price and the pump price of petrol is usually around N9 per litre.

This means that at an ex-depot price of N108 per litre, the pump price of PMS should be around N115 per litre, N10 lower than the current highest price band of N125 per litre.

The current retail price of petrol is N123.50 per litre at NNPC Retail outlets and N125 per litre at private petrol stations, while diesel is sold around N200 per litre.

The responsibility of fixing petroleum products prices lies solely with the Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA), but the agency is yet to release the pricing templates for May 2020, as against its promise that the templates would be released on a monthly basis, to serve as guide for products pricing for each of the month.

Attempt to get the reactions of the PPPRA as to the reasons behind its failure to publish the pricing templates for May proved abortive, as General Manager, Corporate Services of the agency, Mr. Kimchi Apollo, failed to respond to enquiries sent to his phone.

KanyiDaily recalls that the Federal Government had directed the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to immediately reduce the pump price of petrol from N145 to N125.

This coming following the outbreak of coronavirus which affected global economy, international crude oil price slumped from $60 to $30 and even less.
