Ten African countries with the most expensive petrol
Kenyans have consistently complained about the high cost of fuel but they will be shocked to learn their country doesn’t even rank among the 10 ten with the most expensive fuel on the continent.
According to data by the Global Petrol Prices, the high cost of fuel is exacerbated by a number of factors, including the increasing scarcity of the commodity, the rising cost of energy in Africa where all of Africa’s leading oil producing countries have failed at being able to refine the product locally, the on-going Russian-Ukraine war, among others.
Below are the African countries with the highest cost of fuel.
