The Liberian Petroleum Authorities say all products entering in the country go through several rigorous tests and after meeting the required specifications are permitted to be off loaded into its shore tanks.

The  Release clarifies  that the current fall in the retail pump prices of diesel and gasoline on the market is mainly attributed to the declined in the world market  price of  petroleum  coupled with management decision  to  institute a flexible importation procedure along with an  effective stock management scheme that created competition , enhanced efficiency and guaranteed  competitive retail prices throughout the country.
