Scheme of Things- The most expensive places to buy fuel in the world

Government imposed Emergency Energy Levies on the prices of petroleum products that kept prices static though prices were falling.

  • Published:

Ghanaians are still unsettled over the price of fuel at the pumps after the world international prices took a giant tumble from over $60 to $28 today.

Government imposed Emergency Energy Levies on the prices of petroleum products that kept prices static though prices were falling.

Customers expected prices to fall as per the deregulation policy passed by  the National Petroleum Authority. Under the policy, every change in  the components of petroleum pricing must result in  real- time change in the prices of fuel at the pump.

But how does Ghana's prices stand in relation to how cost of fuel in other countries of the world.

Here is a quick breakdown from the World Bank for 2014-2015:
