  1. FYI Zambia is not the only country where fuel prices increased. Zimbabwe is selling its petrol at R12.86 per litre or US$1.73 <=> ZMK8,217.50, Malawi is selling its fuel ay US$1.50 per litre or ZMK7,125.00 per litre. Therefore, Zambias price of K6,600 per litre or US$1.38 is amongst the lowest. RSA has the lowest at US$1.03 per litre purely because 30% of their fuel is extracted from coal and blended with biofuel. Therefore, they are able to deliver cheaper products.
