Ghanaian traders to government: Reduce fuel prices to lower cost of food

Ghanaian traders have called on their government to take urgent steps to reduce fuel prices. According to the traders, the continued increment in fuel prices had increased the cost of transporting foodstuffs from rural areas to urban markets. They also said middlemen who played an active role in carting foodstuffs to urban markets had taken advantage of the fuel prices to increase the cost of their services.

In the circumstance, they said, traders were left with no option but to transfer the transportation cost to the final consumer. The trading community made the call at an interactive forum held by the Cabinet Ministerial Committee set up by the President to look into the causes of the high cost of foodstuffs.
