The general secretary of (GPRTU), Godfred Abulbire, indicated that the reduction in transportation cost Ghanaians were looking for won’t happen anytime soon.
Petroleum product prices have decreased significantly, and this Friday, December 16, 2022, according to the Institute for Energy Security (IES), they will continue to decline.
According to IES, the new pricing for gasoline, diesel, and LPG will be around GH13 and GH16 per litre and GH12 and GH12 per kilogram, respectively.
Since commercial drivers increased their charges by about 40% at the beginning of the year, Ghanaians have urged them to do so repeatedly.
On Citi FM’s “Eyewitness News” on Wednesday, Mr. Abulbire stated that the Union wouldn’t hurry into a reduction until all of the causes of the increase in transportation costs were addressed.
He added that before deciding on the reduction range, the Union will ensure that the pattern of the recent decline in fuel costs and the growth in the value of the cedi remains the same.
