Japanese consumers see gasoline prices at highest levels since 2008


"The average retail price of regular gasoline topped 160 yen this week for the first time since October 2008...the highest price on Monday was 160.1 yen per liter in Kochi Prefecture...Prices were up in all prefectures, with the highest being in Kochi (up 6.2 yen over last week) and Tottori (up 4 yen over last week)....the rising prices were due to the weak yen and turmoil in Egypt which has pushed up the price of crude oil"
