Prices of food items, fuel soar in Afghanistan

Kabul, Nov 20 (UNI) A number of Kabul residents and businessmen have said that the prices of several primary items, mainly food and fuel, have increased by almost 100 percent compared to last year.
“Last year the price of cooking oil was around 1,050 to 1,200 Afs, but now it has reached 2,500 Afs,” said Rahimullah, a shopkeeper. “A person whose income is 5,000 Afs per month cannot buy more than two items; a bag of flour and a can of oil,” said Samiullah, a shopkeeper.
The rise in food prices has been a cause of major concern for Kabul residents. “Prices have risen a lot, last year a bag of flour was 1,300 Afs, but now it has risen to 2,300 Afs. Oil’s price was 1,200 Afs, but now it has reached to 2,200Afs,” said Omid, a Kabul resident, Tolo News reported.
