Namibia is home to state-regulated petrol and diesel prices. This allows the same prices at every fuel station at any given time and eliminates competition in the fuel sector. The prices are set by the Ministry of Mines and Energy on a monthly basis. Base price is given for Walvis Bay; prices for other areas are set by this base price plus an additional price for transport (between 5-30 cents).
Valid as per 6 August 2014 (base price in Walvis Bay per litre)
