Just barely few hours ago, it was announced that Goodluck Jonathan has removed Fuel Subsidy starting from Today January 1st, 2012 and the price per litre is #141.
Here is the response from contacts via BBM about the new price, fuel scarcity etc

Reports from Ibadan and Ogun states reports same petrol stations shut down and pandemonium in states.
There are reports that public transports are increased by N50 by commuters in some lagos areas.
