While the average price of Brent crude oil fell from an average of $109.37 a barrel in March to $104.78 in April, thanks in part to new Covid-19 lockdowns in China, the department said “the impact of [this] not that significant as the average price of crude oil only decreased slightly during the period under review and is still high”. Namibians are meanwhile reminded that the price of petrol in the country will decrease by N$ 1.20/litre and diesel by 30c/litre overnight.
