Fuel Prices To Drop By 5% From October 16 – COPEC

The Chamber of Petroleum Consumers (COPEC) has predicted that fuel prices are likely to reduce at the pumps from Monday, October 16, 2023.

Currently, petrol sells at an average price of GH¢12.63 per litre while diesel goes for GH¢13.40 per litre.

According to COPEC, petrol prices may reduce to GH¢12.098 per litre while diesel prices may plummet to GH¢12.694 per litre from the second pricing window of October, which begins on Monday, October 16, 2023.

Executive Secretary of COPEC, Duncan Amoah, in a statement issued on October 13, attributed the anticipated drop to a significant drop in the prices of the fuel on the international market as well as the seeming appreciation of the cedi against the US dollar.

“Indications of prices based on international price movements and the forex performance over the past forthright points to some marginal reductions across pumps for the coming window as confirmed by CBOD petroleum pricing outlook for the window,” COPEC said.

He added, “The second pricing window for October under the National Petroleum Authority’s price deregulation programme on petroleum pricing is set to commence from Monday the 16th of October”.
