ASSESSMENT OF THE EFFECT OF FUEL PRICE HIKE ON BUSINESS OPERATIONS (A CASE STUDY OF GOURMET PIZZA COMPANY, ABUJA)

 

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY

Almost all sectors of the economy depend on oil. Any contemplation therefore of a possible scarcity or unavailability of the product will in no doubt stipulate unnecessary price hike of petroleum in the country (Sikkam, 2009).

Arinze (2011) opined that the fuel price hike is a reflection of bad management. Irrespective of the negative effects of fuel price increase, the Federal Government of Nigeria on January1st, 2012 ceased to subsidize petroleum In Nigeria, for decades Nigerians have enjoyed low gasoline prices, but those benefits are no more. Fuel prices should be uniform, controlled by government, and infrequently adjusted. The Nigeria fuel price was ₦65/liter between Aug 2005 (US$0.50) and Dec 2011 (US$0.41), except in 2007 and 2008 when it was raised to ₦75/liter for a month and then lowered to ₦70/liter. And have ever since gained higher increase in price. Fuel subsidy removal has been a very topical and delicate issue in Nigeria as it is the one of the major factors influencing fuel price rise in the country.

The impact of the petrol price hikes could go beyond simply pushing up transport costs. It also affects the cost of producing goods and services. In particular, the prices of food, clothing and footwear, furnishings, and most importantly businesses struggle to carryout operations, more also housing and utility costs also tick up on the back of the scrapping of the petrol price subsidy. In addition the higher petrol prices, the cost of producing electricity from petrol-powered generators for businesses also rise,” according to Yvonne Mhango, an analyst at Renaissance.

Mhango said the impact of a higher petrol price on food is likely to resonate with most Nigerians. Rough estimates suggest that transport costs account for about 10% of the total cost of producing food in Nigeria. The cost of electricity used to process food is estimated to be around 5% of total production.
