DPR seals filling stations that sells above government regulated price in Bayelsa

The Department of Petroleum Resources in Bayelsa State on Friday sealed some petrol stations in Yenagoa, the state capital, for selling fuel above the government regulated price of N145 per litre.

Speaking to journalists during the exercise, State Controller of Operations, DPR, Mrs. Ejiro Ofondu, said the effort was to compel marketers not sell the product above the approved pump price.
The DPR monitoring team visited many filling stations in the metropolis to ensure that marketers complied with the price regime of N145.
It was observed that apart from the NNPC mega filling station along Sani Abacha Expressway that sold Premium Motor Spirit for N143 per litre, other stations sold the product above the approved price of N145.
At Sobaz filling station, Ekeki, Yenagoa, the product was sold for N210 per litre, while at Ereboter Oil, along Swali Road, also in the capital, the product was sold for N205.
However, the DPR compelled all the stations visited to sell at the normal price.
A petrol station, Ido Oil Nigeria Limited, along Melford Okilo Expressway, Yenagoa, was sealed by the DPR monitoring team for refusing to sell at the government approved pump price of N145.
