Petrol, diesel prices to go down – IES

The Institute for Energy Securities has revealed that the prices of gasoline and diesel will decrease slightly starting this week due to a decrease in the global market pricing of completed petroleum products.

On the other hand, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) may become more expensive as a result of a depreciating cedi and a rise in product prices.

“In the wake of the price falls recorded for liquid fuels: gasoline (2.84%), and gasoil (4.84%) on the international market, it is expected that the prices of the two commodities will fall on the domestic fuel market. In the final two weeks in December 2023, the price of liquid fuels on the local market are likely to drop marginally given that net price reductions recorded on international fuels market. However LPG could see its price go up following an increased product price coupled with a depreciated local currency”.

“Specifically, liquid fuels price could go down between 2%-4% respectively, whereas LPG price is expected to go up by about 5%”, it added.
