Some commercial drivers in the Kumasi Metropolis of the Ashanti Region have complained about the increase in fuel prices, saying the situation is having a negative toll on the transport business and cost of living.
Scores of the drivers who spoke with Republic Press said the recent fuel hike is affecting their work which they are looking up to the National Petroleum Authority and Government to do something about it.
According to them, fuel price has been increased persistently in a space of seven months this year which to them is very bad.
“The recent 3% will not help our business because we the drivers can not deliberately increase the transport fares so authorities must consider us in the fuel price.” They stressed
Petrol, diesel and LPG are the most purchased fuel products in Ghana, and any price increase turns to affect transport fares and prices of goods and services.
