Recent price surge of Fuel has taken a toil on Ghanaians. Many have parked their cars and resort to public transport system. Fares at various lorry stations are also nerve-racking. Many passengers are seen queued at various lorry parks.
Today, the Chamber of Petroleum Consumers (COPEC) announced a likely reduction of fuel prices by Monday, 14th November 2022. This was made known to Roselyn Felli on Prime Morning, Joy News, by the Executive Secretary of COPEC, Mr. Duncan Amoah. Mr Amoah indicated that; measures are been put in place to help subsidize the rising prices of fuel.
Mr. Amoah continued to say; "we will be expecting diesel to drop from GHs23.49 to somewhere around GHs 21.19, and petrol a drop from GHs 17.99 to somewhere GHs 17.10 or 17". This is as a result of forex rates picked over the week by COPEC he noted.
This will go a long way to help reduce fares and help stabilize recent hikes in transportation. Ghanaians will have some rest from the recent quarrels seen at various lorry stations when prices of fare is dropped.
