Slightly higher prices for kerosene and diesel have been matched by bigger drops in the price of motor spirit, premix and LPG in the latest review of fuel prices for the fourth quarter of 2016.

Kerosene is up by two cents a litre to $1.18 and diesel goes up by one cent to $1.40. But there is good news for most motorists with motor spirit down five cents a litre to $1.72. And maritime communities will also benefit from a five cents a litre fall in the price of Premix to $1.56.

The fall in the price of LPG is more dramatic. A 4.5 kilogram cylinder of LPG is down 84 cents to $10.77, a 12 kilogram cylinder is down $2.23 to $28.73, Bulk LPG per KG is down 16 cents to $2.03 and Auto Gas per litre is down 10 cents to $1.36.

The lower prices for motor spirit, premix and LPG have been welcomed by the Minister for Industry, Trade and Tourism Faiyaz Siddiq Koya.

“As everyone in Fiji knows, we are hostage to price movements overseas and have no control over whatever increases are forced on us by the global market.

“But the fall in these prices is good news, and especially in the case of motor spirit and LPG as Fijians prepare to celebrate Diwali.

“The fall in premix is also good news for maritime communities, who are totally dependent on it for transport and their connection to the rest of Fiji,” he said. See tables for details, effective from midnight last night.
