Ticket prices for travel buses to Sudan's western states have increased by more than half, owing to fuel shortages.

Speaking to Radio Dabanga, a number of travelers complained about the prices which were installed by the brokers. The price of a bus ticket from Khartoum to El Fasher in North Darfur has risen from SDG 300 to 400 ($50-67).

From Khartoum-Nyala (South Darfur), people have to pay SDG 420 instead of 380 ($70-63). Travelling from Khartoum to El Obeid in Kordofan now costs SDG 180 instead of SDG 120 ($30-20).
