The price of fuel oil has risen sharply and now stands at 360,400 LL (+24,200 LL), like that of the 10 kilo gas cylinder which is now 319,300 LL (+20,700 LL).
This rise was induced by the fall of the Lebanese pound on the black market, the local currency having touched its all-time low against the greenback. Also, the rise in fuel prices on world markets has potentiated this upward phenomenon.
