I ordered from Alibaba.com, you can also order from aliexpress.com. I have my own special arrangement for shipping goods from China. It normally takes three weeks.

Easy bro...did you Just say shipping is 3wks from China?

Wow not even 3 months

Or you meant to say by Air which is approximately 2wks?

Like my tired is really tired o.

I'm a spray painter and we need petrol to execute tasks; ( mixing gloss paint, running the spray engine and what not).

This sudden petrol price hike had taken a huge toll on me personally. Welders are on the bright side cos diesel price keeps crashing for a while now and most of them use diesel engines.

Before now, N2,000 petrol will handle the painting of 15-20 doors. But now my brothers ,N5,000 worth of fuel can't deliver 20 of the same doors.

If not for the odd jobs and some improvisation, I wonder what would have become of me lately.

Like we're just programmed to suffer in this country.

Only way out is to try and increase your income

The Situation is almost impossible

A salary earner who earns 100k, lives at Magodo or Isheri and works in Victoria Island spends over 80K a month on transport alone. How can he continue the job?... how does he feed, pay rent, feed the family, pay electricity and other bills, buy airtime and data, cloth himself and family, deal with general life expenses?


But Okada or start his own biz near home




How does a barber who spend 1.5 liters of petrol to barb one person break even,


1500 is 3 litres which is almost 4hrs of light and can carry 4 clippers
Lie small small



How do you expect a Nigerian in remote Osun to pay 3K to barb hair.... how does the barber survive with increased electricity tariff and increased fuel price?


Learn to barb himself and buy clipper





How does the hair stylist and tailors who depend on fuel to carry out their business break even?, if they inflate their prices ... how many Nigerians can afford it? cry cry
see above. Tailors should share Gen

What happens when gas rises as usntge norm in Nigeria
wirinet:


Borrow sense and switch to cooking gas. Dual petrol/gas carburetor are a fad right now. 1kg of cooking gas at N600 is equivalent of 4 litres of petrol at N2000. The problem now is that the Carburetor has mooned, something that cost N12,000 before the petrol increase is now selling at N30,000. Me I have ordered mine direct from China, I expecting it next weekend.

If Tinubu was not allowed to impose himself on Nigerians, his supporters would have been disturbing us with how Tinubu would have changed Nigeria within 48hrs of swearing in.


Allowed?
How was he allowed?
How did he impose himself?
Did he not have right to contest?
Did anyone stop you from contesting?





Buhari was given a chance, he failed
Tinubu was equally given a chance now, he is showing early signs of abysmal poor performance
he had done excellently well.
It is you That is lazy that has failed?
How many farm do you have
What do you manufacture
What do you produce?

He has enabled you to generate your own electricity but you're waiting to be spoonfed abi?

Keep lamenting.

Smart ones have move to solar and LPG.

All my bulbs at home and tv are on solar. Only freezer and Ac is on phcn. Infact there is a company that sells solar with tv, 4 bulbs and fan but l don't want to advertise so that l will not be banned. Just ask around.

Then we switch to the next cheaper fuel, many CNG. Right now CNG is around N120 per kg or is it cubic meters. I went to the major distributor of CNG here in Ikorodu last week to make enquiries. They informed me need to come for trainings before I can be allowed to deal in CNG. They showed me some cars running on CNG.
Many Vehicle owners are converting to CNG right know to save cost on fueling.

The Dual Petrol/Gas carburetor also runs on CNG.

In e-commerce parlance shipping can mean air, sea or road. Shipping by air for me usually takes 3 weeks - from supplier to the office of my shipping agent.

Re: How Do Entrepreneurs That Use Petrol Engines Cope? by SeriouslySense(m): 10:33pm On Jul 03, 2023
where is this truth.
Originakalokalo:
Cost cutting control is key.

“And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”
— Revelation 12:9 (KJV)

How did he deceive the whole world?

He tells half truth and half lies.

He told Adam that he will not die if he eat the forbidden fruit.

Physically, really, Adam did not die.

He died spiritually by being separated from God.


Look at these three religion:

Judaism
Islam
Christianity

These religions originated from virtually the same source.

Seek the truth. The truth is here somewhere.

Don't let the devil deceive you.

There will always be something to switch to. The amount of energy available on earth is almost limitless. There is solar, wind, Gas (Methane, Butane, propane, CNG), Biogas, Biodiesel and ultimately nuclear. We only need to be innovative. And as they say, necessity is the mother of invention. We already waste (flare) million of cubit meters of gas per day while we are energy starved. We cannot and should not rely on a single source of energy.

There is no truth. The perceived truth is according to the observer point or should I say frame of reference. It depends first on your perception and experienced, then on the social construct you are living in and finally on the indoctrination you have received and believed.
