People line up to buy discount cooking oil in a Yangon township this month as the economic turmoil triggered by last year’s military coup continues to drive up the price of commodities. While the price of cooking oil has doubled from 5,000 kyats per viss (1.6 kg) to 12,000 kyats since the coup, the Myanmar Edible Oil Dealers group was selling oil for 5,000 kyats per viss.
