The Ministry of Transport says Ghanaians can anticipate lower transportation costs on Monday, December 19, 2022,
The announcement comes after some gas pumps lowered their rates.
On Friday, December 16, 2022, the next pricing window will likely see diesel offered at GH15 per litre while gasoline prices are anticipated to continue to decline.
The ministry added that it is talking with transportation companies to lower the prices by a margin that will benefit both travellers and transportation companies.
“We understand that the fares will definitely come down. It is the margin of discussion that we are still negotiating. We are waiting for the next pricing window on Friday [December 16, 2022]. So when the new prices are announced, we see the clearest picture and will see the percentage margin for the reduction of fares.
“We do not have the full picture until the window opens on Friday. Hopefully, by Monday, the general public should see a reduction in transport fares,” the Deputy Transport Minister, Hassan Tampuli told Citi News.
Meanwhile, General Secretary of the Ghana Private Road and Transport Union (GPRTU), Godfred Abulbire, has encouraged Ghanaians to hold their breath and expect some relief soon.
