Total has hiked the price of gas from $15 to $20 per kg. This follows a similar move by Zuva Petroleum which raised the price for its gas from $18 to $22 last Friday.
According to Zim Price Check, Total has a model of selling gas different from other retailers. The report says:
"Total uses a somewhat old model of selling gas. They have their own containers for which you have to pay a deposit the first time you become a customer. You then take the container home and when it runs empty you have to bring it back."
However, the model has several advantages for Total’s customers in that they use the same containers when they return to buy more gas and the gas cylinders are safer, and leaking containers are repaired away from customers.
