No Plans To Reduce Fuel Prices – Govt
The government has indicated that it has no plans of reducing the price of petroleum products, even though the world market price of the commodity has dropped.
Under a new petroleum pricing formula introduced by government, the Minister for Energy Albert Kan Dapaah promised the nation that ex-pump price of fuel would be reduced or increased in conformity with the world price.
Following a significant reduction in the world price of the commodity, the opposition National Democratic Congress- NDC group in parliament and sections of the public have been calling for a reduction in the prices.
Government however says it has decided to maintain the higher figure until it is able to defray a substantial part of the debts of the Tema Oil Refinery.
