His statement  has emited different reactions from online users, some comments are captured below

‘’Touching Fuel is to destroy this broken economy my friend. You can’t plan when there are no Incomes, my friend. Picha ni mbaya, si uwongo’’

‘’Can they also go down when the prices go down? That usually never happens’’

‘’I love the genuineness of this post. The reality is that the price of petroleum is subject to a multitude of global factors beyond EPRA’s control.’’

‘’I agree. OPEC countries have reduced production affecting the global crude supply. Libya, for example has shut 4 of it’s terminal because of a storm. Kazakhstan is doing maintenance, among others. We should be ready as the world crude oil suppliers have CUT down supply by half’’
