Prices of petrol and diesel would fall marginally from this week, as a result of a decline in prices of finished petroleum products on the world market, the Institute for Energy Securities has disclosed.

However, the price of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) could see its price going up following an increase in the product price coupled with a depreciated cedi.

“In the wake of the price falls recorded for liquid fuels: gasoline (2.84%), and gasoil (4.84%) on the international market, it is expected that the prices of the two commodities will fall on the domestic fuel market. In the final two weeks in December 2023, the price of liquid fuels on the local market are likely to drop marginally given that net price reductions recorded on international fuels market. However LPG could see its price go up following an increased product price coupled with a depreciated local currency”.

“Specifically, liquid fuels price could go down between 2%-4% respectively, whereas LPG price is expected to go up by about 5%”, it added.
