Petrol price to increase by 2%, LPG by 5% – IES

The Institute for Energy Security reported that starting on July 1, 2024, and continuing for the next two weeks, the price of gasoline is anticipated to increase by 2.0%.

Liquified petroleum gas (LPG) will see a 5% price increase at the same time as diesel prices will rise by 4.0%.

Fuel prices are likely to rise as a result of the cedi’s decline in value relative to the US dollar and the rise in the cost of completed petroleum products on the global market.

Considering the developments in the foreign fuel market and the domestic forex market, the Institute for Energy Security (IES) anticipates an increase in fuel prices in the first half of July 2024, on account of the worsening performance of the Ghana cedi”.
