Star oil is babe... GOIL is just milking the citizens... until u guys drop ur prices to 10 Cedis or less, we ain't gonna buy ur fuel. have u guys noticed the queues at some fuel stations that sell less than 11 Cedis?
Decreases in the prices of crude oil products in the world market is a fragile situation.....let give ourselves up the end of 1st quarter of the year 2023 before we will be able to access the dynamics well.....
I will NEVER patronize Goil, Star Oli is selling at 10.99 cedi more than two weeks ago, why should I buy petrol for more than 12 cedi? STAR OIL is the real deal.
This stealing of citizens must stop. The price of fuel at the international market has fallen and the cedis too has appreciated but you are lackadaisical about drastically reducing prices of fuel at the pump.
