The APM committee met on Thursday to decide on the price of petrol and diesel for the next 4 months. Much to our expectations, following the curbing of petrol prices on the world market, the price of petrol met a 5% decrease to become MUR 46.80 instead of MUR49.50 per litre. Heavy oil rose from MUR 15.8117 to MUR 18.97  while diesel suffered a maximum increase of 20%. The new price as from Thursday midnight was MUR 51.20 Now more than ever, companies are complaining about the bitter increase and as usual, it is expected that price of bus fare, bread and other local commodities too will increase. Once again the Mauritian population will suffer in silence.
