However, a litre of petrol and diesel is sold at 4 cedis 85 pesewas at Goil, Shell, and Total fuel stations.

This means that there is a drop in the price of a gallon of petrol and diesel from 18 cedis 50 pesewas to 18 cedis 36 pesewas.

The Institute of Energy Security (IES) attributed the increase to the rise in the global prices as well as the marginal depreciation of the cedi.
