Fuel Pricing Policies

Local Currency: NAD
Exchange Rate: 6.97


Last Update:

"Pricing policy: A 1990 act regulates gasoline and diesel prices, and Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) announces retail prices of gasoline and wholesale prices of diesel by location once a month. The National Energy Fund subsidizes fuel supply to remote areas, and in addition has been used to subsidize regulated fuel prices from time to time.

Information: Prices of gasoline and diesel are posted on MME’s Web site every month."

Fuel Price Composition

Price composition.

Fuel prices differ by actual transportation costs, i.e. inland prices are higher than coastal prices.

There are no more fuel subsidies in Namibia. It is unclear, whether there is a taxation on liquid fuels.

A more exact description is missing.
