When the ERC lowered prices of fuel last weekend by Sh11, motorists did not feel the relief. By Sunday evening, fuel still traded at the old price in almost all stations.
The attendants said they had not received new stocks. The new relief prices, they said, would come with new stocks.
It perplexes me that when fuel prices are raised, the new prices take effect immediately When the fuel prices drop, it takes long to effect — until the old stocks are cleared. Where is the logic? Owners of filling stations should drop prices with the same speed they raise them.
