The Institute for Energy Security has predicted a slight decrease in fuel prices starting May 16, 2024.


This reduction has been attributed to the decline in prices of refined petroleum products on the international market, which outweighs the impact of cedi depreciation.

“Following the changes recorded on the international market for refined petroleum products, Gasoline [petrol], Gasoil [diesel] and Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) recorded a fall of about 5.68%, 4.51% and 4.72%, respectively.”


“In the second pricing-window for May 2024, ex-pump is expected to fall given the reductions recorded for refined petroleum products on the international market, which is wider than Ghana cedi depreciation,” IES stated.
