A section of market men and women have confirmed that they have also increased prices of food items due to the increments on fuel prices and lorry fare.
The recent increase in cost of petroleum products across the country has affected a number of business and workers alike as cost of living has increased.
According to the traders who said they have increased prices, things are getting out of hand because they really suffer whenever there is an increase in transportation fares and they find it difficult to increase their goods but this time round they have increased their prices.
These traders include: Fruit sellers, Vegetable sellers, Tuber food sellers and among others.
In an interview with Agyenkwa FM's Osofoba Kwame Afrifah, they said they did not want to take such action but the fuel and transport fares increments have also forced them to increase the prices of their stuff in order not to run at a loss.
They are therefore pleading with the government to do something about the fuel price increment, if possible.
