The Ghana Private Roads Transport Union (GPRTU) and the Ghana Road Transport Coordinating Council will hold a meeting today to review transport fares.

The National Petroleum Authority (NPA), last Saturday increased petroleum products by 9% with effect from Sunday, May 17, 2015. Petrol will now be sold at GHc3.33 per litre while Diesel will be sold at GHc3.24 per litre. A kilogram of LPG is expected to be sold at GHc2.88, MGO Local will go up GHc2.96. Unified petroleum is expected to go up by 4% while Kerosene will be up by 9%. However, prices of premix fuel and RFO remain the same.

The (GPRTU) had warned transport operators in the country not to increase fares in spite of an increment in petroleum products.

The deputy minister of transport, Joyce Bawa Mogtari, speaking to Joy News last Monday said, there was a meeting but since it was a weekend, the engagement will continue so that by Wednesday, things would be stabilised.
