Fuel price skyrockets as queues spread: The pump price of petrol has skyrocketed in some major cities across the country, selling above the government stipulated rate of N87 per litre, a survey by Daily Trust showed yesterday.

In Port Harcourt, Rivers State, for instance, our correspondent reports that the commodity was selling at N300 per litre at the black market, even as many filling stations remained shut. In Kano, Kaduna, Jos, Imo and other cities, fuel was selling at between N130 and N160 a litre.
