We all know Nigeria’s erratic fuel price situation – one moment it’s up and

the next it’s down. The current removal of fuel subsidy has helped

stabilize the price a bit, but it’s still on the high side compared to the

low prices we once enjoyed. At this point, fuel efficient cars are more or

less a blessing to Nigerians. Jumia Travel <>, the
