ZERA Announces 'Subsidised' Fuel Prices For March 2022

ZERA Announces 'Subsidised' Fuel Prices For March 2022

The Zimbabwe Energy Regulatory Authority (ZERA) has announced new fuel prices for the month of March 2022 which it said had been subsidised by the Government even though they went up.

The energy regulator has increased the price of diesel to ZWL$195.99 and US$1.51 from ZWL$168.17 and US$1.44 per litre, respectively.

The price of petrol for March is now ZWL$195.72 and US$1.51 per litre, a significant increase from the February price that was capped at ZWL$169.91 and US$1.44, respectively.

In a public notice, ZERA said the fuel price hike was caused by the increase in international crude oil prices. 

This is in reference to Russia’s illegal invasion of its neighbour Ukraine, on Thursday last week, which caused crude oil prices to rise across the globe. ZERA said:

The fuel price increase has been prompted by international crude oil prices which continuously went up following tensions in Eastern Europe.

Government has had to subsidize the final price to cushion the economy. The public and operators are advised that the blending ratio remains at E0.

Operators may sell the petroleum products below the prescribed prices depending on their trading advantages and should display prices in a prominent place as provided by the fuel pricing regulations.

Its now high time for Crude oil manufacturing countries in Africa to take advantage of the instability in Ukraine to make profits however on the other side Putin cn be justified in his mission in Ukraine, denazify Ukraine, demilitatirize Ukraine, guarantee Russian sovereignty in Cremea and promise tht Ukraine will not join NATO thn war is over, Economic sanctions hd bn there and will not stop war save peoples lives, now there is Nuclear radiation danger in Ukraine, do something U toothless EU AND NATO

Do something like what @RussianUkraineWar?

Like bombing Russia and start nuclear holocaust? You ate calling NATO and EU "toothless" and yet you are calling on them to do something!!! Hahahahaha, that is a contradiction- decide whether you are with them or you are against them.

NATO and EU are doing what any rational body politic can do- Economic Warfare without endangering the rest of the world

there is no illegal invasion by Russia,its online with what the European community did in Iraq,Libya,Syria,somalia,iran and in what they termed the third world

Machiavelli 2 months ago

For your own information the United Nations voted 141:5 denouncing Russia's invasion of Ukraine

That makes it illegal because the majority of the world says so

It baffles the mind ..if Zera..a gvt organ describes Russiainvasion as illegal..then why did our gvt/ rep abstained the vote at UN extraordinary meeting.?..instead of voting against Russian invasion

Machiavelli 2 months ago

@ Charlie Charlie, our government is shortsighted. It sides with despots because it hates the West for criticising its poor human rights record , and therefore could not be seen to be aligned with the West
