Fijian Commerce and Consumer Commission Chief Executive Joel Abraham says the war in Ukraine has caused significant disruption to the global fuel market and as a result, fuel prices have seen dramatic shifts.

He adds Fijians should prepare for higher fuel prices as the war continues and escalates.

Fiji’s fuel price review follows a one-month lag period and as such, prices are based on imports made in March 2022 by fuel companies.
