Puma Oil Limited has recorded the cheapest prices for petrol and diesel after the first deregulation window in September.
According to data collated by Thomas Dodzi, Head of Research and Pricing at the Chamber of Petroleum Consumers Ghana (COPECGH), as of September 2, 2016, Puma Oil Limited was selling petrol for GHS 3.620 per litre, representing a 4.32 percent increment while diesel was being offered for GHS 3.590 per litre, which shows a 6.21percent rise.
Petrol has been increased from between three and six per cent across most of the Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) while diesel has gone up by between four and eight per cent across most pumps or fuel stations.
COPECGH indicated that other oil marketing companies were working to adjust prices for the first pricing window, however, a lot of the electronic display boards of the fuel companies continue to be off.
COPECGH, therefore, advised the public to desist from patronising fuel from such companies due to the tendency for them to short-change consumers.
