In this Monday, July 11, 2011, photo, residents use charcoal to prepared a meal in Lagos, Nigeria, because kerosene for burners in their kitchen is too expensive to use. In this oil rich country, kerosene has become one of the most sought after fuel products, with prices rising sharply above the government subsidized price as 'middlemen' take advantage of the situation, which leaves many families unable to pay the price and now forced to cook on open fires.
