WAU 10 November 2016 [Gurtong] - “Since they started arriving in Wau town, right now five out of the number of fuel stations in Wau town started have resumed their operations selling a litter of fuel at 70 South Sudanese pounds as compared to the 36 South Sudanese pounds per litter in June.”

He said so far 27 tankers have arrived the State since last week while others are still on the way to Wau State.

“However the fuel station managers were proposing 95 pounds per litter. The price of a litter to be sold at 70 pounds was reached between us as the State government and the fuel station managers,” said Mel.

“They were demanding 95 SSP per a litter because they said that they have encountered a lot of loses along the way to Wau and spent more than four months due to bad roads,” Mel added.
“We have rejected the demands because the price was very high compared to 36 pounds per litter by then,” said Mel.

“The agreement of selling the fuel at the agreed amount is a temporary agreement,” he said.
According to the Mayor the prices of fuel in the State will be revised after a month.
