Price of Petroleum products from June last year has gone down by a little over 60 percent but there has not been a corresponding reduction in prices at the pumps.

The Authority over weekend kept prices of various petroleum produces unchanged ? meaning a litre of petrol still sells at GHC3.05 and diesel at GHC2.97 per litre.
