Fuel Prices Surge in Ghana – Diesel Sells at Gh¢14.49, Petrol at Gh¢13.49 Per Litre

The prices of petrol and diesel in the Republic of Ghana have gone up significantly at the pump, effective March 1, 2024.

Energy News Africa reports that a litre of diesel is selling at Gh¢14.49 per litre from the previous price of Gh¢ 13.99 per litre while petrol is selling at Gh¢13.49 per litre from the previous price of Gh¢12.99

Unlike in some other parts of Africa where fuel prices are reviewed monthly, in Ghana, fuel prices are reviewed every two weeks.

During the second pricing window which ended on February 29, 2024, petrol was sold between Gh¢11.90 and Gh¢12.99 per litre while diesel was sold between Gh13.99 and Gh¢13.78 per litre.

The increment in fuel prices is due to the rising cost of refined products on the international market and exchange rate volatility.
