Fuel prices have seen some reductions as the second pricing window for February has begun.

GOIL is currently selling a litre of petrol at GH¢14.50, and diesel at GH¢14.90 an indication of a 5% reduction from the previous price of petrol and a 3% reduction from the price of diesel.


The reduction has been linked to the recent stability in the Ghana cedi these past weeks.

Meanwhile, the Institute for Energy Security (IES) predicted that Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) will witness a marginal price drop in the second pricing window.

IES in a press statement sighted by GhanaWeb Business further stated that the price of gasoil could drop by 4.26%. This means that the price will move from GH¢15.90 to about GH¢15.25 this month – February.

Meanwhile, the price of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) is expected to be sold at GH¢13.51 per kilogramme across all stations.

The institute also asserted that the price reduction in gasoil could be attributed to government’s Gold-for-Oil programme.
