The Fijian Competition and Consumer Competition says the fluctuations noted in local fuel prices for February are due to unfavourable movements noted in the international prices for Motor Spirit, Premix and Diesel.
Change in prices are also due to unfavourable movement in international freight rates; which were greater than gains from the weakening of the US Dollar against the Fijian dollar based on December 2020 imports.
