ABSTRACT
Deregulation is the removal or simplification of government rules and regulations that constrain the operation of market force. In course of  studying the effect of deregulation, various economic model will be applied  to data gotten from the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation NNPC for efficient and workable economic policy that will bring a sustainable development to both the sector and the country as a whole. This work analyzes the various implications removal of subsidy will have on the economy and also determines whether deregulation will be a solution to the problems and challenges existing from the oil and gas sector(downstream sector). .
We shall use data of crude oil  prices and supply from various years reported by Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and Petroleum Pricing and Monitoring Committee(PPMC) bulletin, the prices of petroleum and the appropriate pricing would be  illustrated clearly showing the trend that will best suit our economy .
