Jet fuel prices be increased as follows:

743 thebe per litre for Gaborone;

754 thebe per litre for Maun;

754 thebe per litre for Kasane; and

748 thebe per litre for Francistown.

The above changes take effect from 00:01hrs Tuesday 28th June 2022.

The pump price adjustments are done to align with international crude oil prices. Since February 2022, the main driver of international oil prices has been the Russia – Ukraine war that threatens global crude oil supplies. The rise in international oil prices have put pressure on local pump prices and aviation fuel prices.
