Petrol and Diesel prices have increased beyond 5 cedis at some fuel stations in Ghana.
Two of the major Oil Marketing Companies, Total and Shell announced a 24 pesewas increase of the prices of both Diesel and Petrol. Diesel and Petrol, both are now selling at GHc5.18
On the other hand GOIL is yet to adjust its prices, petrol and Diesel are still selling at GHc4. 94 pesewas.
Other companies such as Allied are also yet to adjust its prices. The company is still selling Petrol and Diesel at GHc4.94
However, Glory Oil is selling a little below this figure as it is selling a litre of Petrol for Ghc4.92 and Ghc4.93 for Diesel.
The IES which predicted the current increase says it is as a result of a 6.33% rise in average Brent crude price, as well as an 8.81% and 5.56% increase in prices of Gasoline and Gasoil on the international market respectively.
Some motorists said while speaking to media that although the increment may affect their livelihoods, they cannot do much about the situation.
A motorist noted, “I am used to it now, so I don’t really check the board. I just buy because I have to fill the car anyway.
