Fuel prices went up in Togo Saturday, with a litre of unleaded gasoline going from 505 to 580 FCFA and diesel rising from 500 to 575 CFA francs.
Kerosene also went up from 390 to 475 CFAF.
The hike did not affect the price of cooking gas, as the 12.5 kg-cylinder remains 3500.FCFA. Explaining the increase, the Togolese government said it could no longer continue to subsidize fuel prices.
The last fuel price hike was in July 2009.
