The Ministry evaluates the prices of fuel every month for the nation, which consumes over 5.2 billion litres of fuel every year. The government pays a quarter of a billion dollars for fuel every month.

One hundred twenty of these fuel stations are located in Addis Abeba. The Enterprise supplies benzene, jet fuel, gasoline, kerosene and light and heavy black naphtha.
