The independent petroleum products marketers in the south west region say petrol may sell for 180 naira per litre, following problems being encountered in getting the supply of the product.
The marketers say the products will be sold at 180 naira per litre within Lagos-Ibadan axis, and 200 naira in the Ogbomoso-Ilorin axis.
According to the Independent Petroleum Products Maketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN), the price of diesel would also further go up.
South west zonal IPMAN chairman, Dele Tajudeen addressing newsmen in Abeokuta on Wednesday said members for the past six months had not been able to get supply of products from the NNPC depots in the axis.
He listed the affected NNPC depots, as including Mosinmi in Ogun, Ore in Ondo, Ibadan, Ejigbo in Lagos, and Ilorin in Kwara state.
The IPMAN zonal chairman says they are being compelled to purchase petrol from the private depots above the official prices, making it difficult to sell petrol at the approved pump price.
