Government's new taxes on petroleum products unfair


Summary short_text

Three of the new taxes which took effect on Saturday are as a result of the imposition of an Energy Sector Recovery Levy of GHS 20 pesewas per litre on petrol/diesel, 18 pesewas per kg on Liquefied Petroleum Gas and a Sanitation and Pollution Levy of GHS10 pesewas per litre of petrol and diesel.

Mr. Asaga said it will be unfair for consumers to pay more for fuel as a result of the new taxes.

Fuel prices have already risen by some 11% in the last two months and the new taxes could make an additional 5% rise in taxes which will be borne by consumers.
