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 and Inland; prices for other areas are set by this base price plus an additional price for transport (between 5-50 cents per litre).
Valid as per 1 March 2017 (base price in Walvis Bay per litre)

Please note: Generally fuel can be paid in cash only! Since September 2011 more and more petrol stations allow paying fuel with credit cards (e.g. no Shell stations accept cards). No Garage or Fuel Cards are accepted anymore as of April 2014.
