Demand for domestic gas is now on the rise following the marginal increase in the pump price of petrol and scarcity of kerosene.
Vice President, Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN), Alhaji Abubakar Dankigari in a telephone interview said “now most energy consumers have converted their utilities to gas; they are using gas now instead of kerosene.”
Although he said that he could not quantify the percentage increase in the demand for gas, he added that “all I know is that they (consumers) are diverting their interest to gas.”
He said the association is partnering with a foreign firm to make cylinders available to everybody, adding that IPMAN wanted all its member filling stations to commence gas sale.
