Transport Fares Shoot Up Due To High Fuel Prices

After a long time of complaining about high fuel prices, those in transport business have finally decided to do something. The high fuel prices have forced them to increase transport fares so as to remain in the business.

Apparently, the transport business has only been making losses and it’s just about time to change the prices so as they make profits.

The issue of high fuel prices has been on the lips of so many Ugandans. Unfortunately, the government has done nothing. Fo months now, the government has been promising to do something but it has only gone worse. As we speak,

Diesel and Petrol are both above 5000 around the city and now the consumers are feeling the pinch.

Unfortunately, it’s not just the transport fares that have shot up, even prices of commodities have further gone up. Soap has slowly gone higher than 10,000 per bar and cooking oil is now at 10,000 already.

The worst bit of it is that all these high prices are attached to the increasingly high prices. The question is how high are the prices going to shoot? It certainly doesn’t look like there is any sign of getting to normal for now.

Earlier on, the prices of fuel had been put on the Russia and Ukraine crisis. However this has been rubbished by opposition politicians who have repeatedly asked how the Russia and Ukraine war can affect our fuel prices.

Most probably every Ugandan wants to know how this war has really constrained fuel prices because no one understands it.
