The association claims the 18 pesewas increment on a kilogramme of gas was not part of the new taxes and levies in the 2021 Budget.

The Vice-Chairman of the association, Gabriel Kumi told Accra-based Citi FM that the country stands to benefit more from access to LPG than the amount of money the government intends to raise from the price increment.

He said: “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 stands to gain by pushing the consumption of LPG from the current 25 per cent to 50 percent far more outweigh the money we are going to gain from these taxes.”
