The Zimbabwe Energy Regulatory Authority (ZERA) announced that fuel prices in Zimbabwe will remain unchanged this week despite a change in the interbank rate.
The interbank rate after Tuesday’s foreign exchange auction system is ZWL$63.74 for every United States Dollar from ZWL$57.36 for every United States Dollar last week.
Fuel prices remain at ZWL$ 71.62 or USD1.28 per litre of blended petrol and ZLW62. 77 or USD1.09 per litre of diesel.
While USD denominated prices have not changed, the fuel prices which are denominated in the local currency, using this week’s interbank rate, have gone down.
Using this week’s official foreign currency exchange rates, a litre of petrol which used to cost an equivalent of US$1.25 is now selling for an equivalent of US$1.12 if someone uses the local Zimbabwe Dollar.
Likewise, a litre of diesel which used to go for an equivalent of US$1.09 is now going for US$0.98 (98 cents) if someone uses the local currency.
