Representative Bhofal Chambers alarmed that a bag of rice is being sold for about US$50, while a gallon of gasoline is now sold for over four hundred Liberian dollars.
Upon his return from Maryland County to Monrovia, Dr. Chambers expressed concern that the living condition of Marylanders is appalling due to bad roads that have led to the hike in the prices of commodities in the area.
The lawmaker, who claimed to have spent about one week on the road while returning to Monrovia, indicated that several commercial and private vehicles are stuck along the road due to the deplorable condition.
Representative Chambers made an appeal to the Government for the rehabilitation of roads leading to the southeast of Liberia, noting that, the people of the region will soon be cut off from the entire country due to the poor condition of the roads.
