The price will go from 235vt/l to 244 VT/L. The price is driven by global oil prices. The benzine stocks receipted in the month of July is now available for distribution and reflects the refinery price. The refinery benchmark of MOPS price for June/July has peaked during that period and this is reflected in the retail price in Vanuatu (Figure 1).

There is likely to be drops in the coming months if the conditions in the global oil market become more favourable for the international refined fuel prices. Vanuatu’s refined fuels are imported and distributed mainly by the Pacific Energy (SSP-Vanuatu).
