    Per Citi Business News checks, market leader Goil has raised petrol prices to 13.50 and diesel price to 13.90 per litre.

    A litre of petrol formerly sold for 12.95gh is now selling for 13.50gh, while diesel previously sold for 12.95gh is now going for 13.90gh at Total Energies, with other OMCs following suit.

    COPEC said the price of LPG will also increase to about 11.9% within the same period.

    The Chamber indicated that the projected retail prices for the various petroleum products will take effect on Wednesday, August 16, with petrol to be sold at GH¢12.97 per liter, diesel GH¢13.43 and the mean price for petrol and diesel GH¢13.20 per liter while LPG will go for GH¢12.30 kilogram.
