The Marketing Companies Association of the Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) has cautioned that they will petition President Akuffo-Addo to reduce the increment levy imposed on gas price.
The Association says the petition is the only option left for them to ensure that consumers are not overburdened. Meanwhile, a kilogram of LPG is currently being sold at GHS6.30 and Ghanaians are to pay an additional 18 pesewas on the said amount.
“We are writing a petition to the President and everybody that matters. There are a lot of laws that have been passed in Ghana but are not operational. We are going to petition so that this law doesn’t become one of those. We will do whatever it takes so that this tax is removed because the benefits this country stand to gain by pushing the consumption of LPG from the current 25 percent to 50 percent far more outweighs the money we are going to gain from these taxes” – Vice-Chairman of the group, Gabriel Kumi added.
