In the first week of November 2012, after months of fuel scarcity across Nigeria, PREMIUM TIMES conducted a survey to find the true situation of petrol availability and cost in states across the country.

Use the interactive map below to find states where petrol is cheapest, most abundant and scarcest.

Petrol is scarcest in Port Harcourt, the capital of River state, home to a refinery and many oil companies. It is most expensive in the outskirts of Jalingo, the capital of Taraba state.
