You will certainly not be a happy person if you should visit a fuel station and experience an increase in fuel prices…an increase which is all new and unannounced.
Ghanaians have taken to social media to vent their frustration over a sudden increase in fuel prices.
The increase comes roughly two weeks ago where there was an official announcement indicating an increase in fuel prices and petroleum products.
Little did car owners and drivers know that they will wake up today to experience another increase in fuel prices that is unannounced and clearly unofficial.
Many have described the new situation as unfair.

@YewuraO replied: The fuel stations can never increase fuel prices wai. So it’s COMING from the government and its very annoying. No youth can plan his life for the next 6 months in this country because fuel alone will be increased 7 times within the 6 months. It’s very sad. Oman b3n ni ?
TV3 presenter, Johnnie Huges sarcastically said the increase in fuel prices may just be a Father’s Day gift that should be enjoyed.
