Continuous increase in prices especially gari.

Homemakers visit to Mile12 market in Lagos on Tuesday, saw a significant increase in the price of gari. A gari seller told our correspondent that the price will still increase because it is in March every year that cassava is always scarce. So the present price of N13,000 and N17,000 for Ijebu Gari is bound to witness increment in the next couple of weeks.

If you are a lover of gari, this is the best time to buy enough. Rice is on the high side too as 50kg of the short grains increased from N19, 000 to N24,000 while the long grains is N18,000. Palm oil price also has fallen from N24,000 to N15,000, cooking gas from N4,800 to N4,600 while Kerosine is now N1,200 per 5 litres keg. Hope to see more of these reductions next week.
