11 per cent fuel price increase report is false - NPA

The National Petroleum Authority (NPA) has asked the public to disregard reports of an eleven per cent increase in fuel prices.

A press statement issued in Accra on Tuesday by Mr Yaro Kasambata, Head, Public Relations and Consumer Service at the NPA said it had observed with concern media headlines suggesting that the price of fuel had increased by 11 per cent at the pump, which was false.

The statement said: “The Authority encourages consumers and the media to check on the price boards of retail stations to determine the true prices of fuel on the market and not rely on data from any group of persons who purport to project fuel prices, which always turn out to be poor and inaccurate.”

“When in doubt, consumers and the media should check with NPA’s website or the bi-weekly publications of retail prices of OMCs published in the Daily Graphic, the Ghanaian Times, and the Gazette by the Assembly Press for accurate information on the retails of fuel by OMCs.”
