Contrary to reports by the National Petroleum Authority (NPA), the Executive Secretary of the Chamber of Petroleum Consumers Ghana, Duncan Amoah has insisted that search at the various fuel stations shows fuel prices have been increased.
It will be recalled that reports went viral of the Chamber’s declaration of expected fuel price increase between 8 and 11 percent effective October 16, 2016. But the NPA objected to the report alleging it has no basis.
Speaking on U TV’s ‘’Adekye Nsonoma’’ this morning, Mr. Amoah challenged the NPA to go out and check with fuel pump stations across the country to determine whether fuel prices have been increased or not. ‘’Instead of coming out to deny blatantly, the NPA should have rather gone into the fields to research’’ he was quoted as saying.
The Executive Director disclosed that as of yesterday, most fuel stations including: Lucky oil, Shell and Total have increased their prices and ‘’Vehicle users will attest to this.”
