Fuel Prices Fail to go Down in Tamale


Barely three days after government announced marginal reduction in fuel prices, some filling stations in the Tamale metropolis still sell a gallon of petrol at eight Ghana cedis instead of seven Ghana cedis.  
The 20 percent reduction was announced last Friday by government following an agreement reached by the leadership of the Trades Union Congress and government.
Some Taxi drivers in the Tamale Metropolis are expressing their anger and dissatisfaction about the refusal of some fuel stations to heed to the government’s directive.
Even though government gave instructions for the immediate implementation of the mitigation measures to cushion Ghanaians, its instructions have been defied, at least by some fuel stations in Tamale.
The drivers who spoke to Zaa News say the fuel stations told them that until they empty the old stock, they will continue to sell eight cedis per gallon instead of seven Ghana cedis as anticipated by the public.
Whiles drivers call for the reverse of the fuel prices, some commuters are also calling for the reduction in lorry fairs.
According to some residents, fuel stations are quick to increase or adjust their machines and even sometimes create what they describe as artificial fuel shortage by refusing to sell fuel in anticipation of any increment.]]>
