The Consumer Council of Fiji is calling on the consumers to become more prudent and frugal in their spending.
The call comes in light of increasing prices of fuel and gas which becomes effective from tomorrow (15th October 2013).
The increases in the fuel and gas prices were expected given the fluctuations at the global level and Fiji is no exception – it is beyond anyone’s control.
Now, that the prices will be going up, the Council advises consumers to become more cautious in the way they spend their money in running their daily lives.
