Fuel Price Increase

As has reported, Institute for Energy Security (IES), a think tank, has said its analysis points to a further hike in the cost per litre of fuel this week, even though there have already been marginal price increases.

According to available data, as of May 09, 2022, fuel prices stood at almost GH¢11 per litre, a marginal increase in price from the week prior.

In its latest analysis of the market for the second pricing window, IES has said the upward revision of petrol, diesel and LPG prices this week will be caused by rising international fuel prices, and the growing pockets of fuel shortages across the country, although the cedi appreciated against the dollar in the past two weeks.
