RE: Gas Prices In Your Town

Petrol is going for N50 per Litre. Which roughly equates to $1.45 per gallon.

Keep in mind that the "official" minimum wage is N7500 per month ($57.70).

In addition to that, there is only one grade of petrol you can purchase in this country; LEADED (and God only knows the octane count)
