"Prices are experiencing a massive drop in the international market for LPG in the immediately preceding week. This might not be unrelated to the COVID-19 induced lockdown."

Regional Disparity In Retail Prices
Regional disparity in the prices of LPG across the country has been a regular feature of the Nigerian LPG market. Though the South-south geopolitical zone hosts the great majority of depots in the country due to its proximity to the ocean, prices have been highest in the region.

Macroeconomic Conditions & LPG Market
*The exchange value of the naira remained stable though out the week as prices start to experience a rise after two weeks of mainly downward trend.
*The gross foreign reserves of Nigeria is continuing a downward trend, however at lower rate. We consider that this may be related to the recent rise in
the price crude oil in the international market.
*As noted last week, the composite Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) for the month March 2020 stood at 49.2 points, indicating contraction in Non-
manufacturing PMI for the first time after thirty-four consecutive months of expansion.
*For the gas market, managers report declining inventory, new orders and employment.

Outlook: Coming weeks
Price of LPG in the domestic market may rise in line with recent rises in international prices of crude oil and the recent easing of the lockdown across major countries of the world.
We expect a continuous stabilization of the exchange value of the naira as market players adjuster to the new rates.
