The increase was occasioned by the passage of the Energy Sector Levy (ESL) by Parliament in December 2015.
Many commuters questioned the increases as they claimed that there has been a drastic drop in crude prices on the international market.
Mr Kumson, a driver at Dansoman, said the price hike is really a problem to them since so much is often spent to keep their vehicles in shape.
Mr Owureku, a commuter, said the recent hike in utility and fuel prices would have an effect on food prices and the cost of living would go higher.
Mr Kakraba, a taxi driver, said he will be very grateful to government if fuel prices are lowered as currently a gallon of petrol is now GHC15.59 and a gallon of diesel is GHC14.76.
