Fuel Prices Cote d'Ivoire
Fuel Pricing Policies
"Pricing policy: Fuel prices are subject to ceilings, uniform throughout the country for gasoline, diesel, and kerosene. LPG prices have been frozen since 2008, and other fuel prices since April 2010. LPG prices set by the government are meant to be maximum prices, but often they represent minimum prices on the market. Ministry of Commerce posts minimum and maximum prices of essential food and other items, including, gasoline, kerosene, diesel, and LPG, by location several times a month. For LPG, the government price is the minimum observed on the market, and actual prices have been up to 39% higher.
Protests: In Mar 2008, sharp increases in food and fuel prices sparked riots, injuring more than a dozen people."
