The new Retail Prices for all the districts of Lesotho shall be as follows:

Petrol 93                                   M 8.20 per litre

Diesel 50                                   M 9.10 per litre

The price drops are attributable to the lower cost of international petroleum products, which were significantly impacted by oil price weakness on the back of a global market downturn due to the coronavirus outbreak.

International product prices for petrol, diesel and illuminating paraffin all decreased during the period under review.
