- Petrol: 13.60 cedis per litre
- Diesel: 13.95 cedis per litre
- Premium: 13.60 cedis per litre
The NPA said that the increase in fuel prices is due to the rise in the price of crude oil on the international market. The price of crude oil has been rising in recent months due to a number of factors, including the war in Ukraine.
The NPA said that it is working with the government to find ways to cushion the impact of the fuel price increase on consumers. However, the NPA said that it is not possible to completely shield consumers from the impact of the rising fuel prices.

The fuel prices in Ghana are going up in September 2023 due to the rise in the price of crude oil on the international market.
The price of crude oil has been rising in recent months due to a number of factors, including the war in Ukraine.
The war in Ukraine has disrupted the global oil supply, as Russia is a major exporter of oil.
This has led to an increase in the demand for oil from other countries, which has pushed up the price.
The increase in fuel prices is expected to have a negative impact on the Ghanaian economy.
It will make transportation more expensive, which will hurt businesses and consumers.
It will also make it more expensive to produce goods and services, which could lead to inflation.
The government of Ghana is working to mitigate the impact of the rising fuel prices.
It has announced a number of measures, including a reduction in import duties on fuel and a subsidy for public transportation.
However, it is not clear how effective these measures will be.
The rising fuel prices are a reminder of the vulnerability of the Ghanaian economy to global oil prices.
The government needs to develop a long-term plan to reduce its reliance on oil imports and to diversify its economy.
