Ghana ranks as one of the top ten African nations with the lowest fuel prices in 2024

Low petrol prices have an impact on many facets of the global economy. They empower consumers and businesses and shape the market, all while ensuring that an economy can function smoothly.

For this reason, governments work to keep the price of fuel somewhat low.

The average cost of petrol is 1.30 US dollars per liter worldwide, according to, a website that monitors fuel costs globally.

Certain nations exhibit more sales than the norm, while others exhibit lower sales. This is rarely the case, though, as there are certain nations with extremely high minimum wages that simultaneously have extremely high petrol prices, giving their residents easy access to fuel.

Energy inputs are essential to many businesses, including manufacturing and agriculture. Consequently, as fuel prices rise, business expenses rise as well. Conversely, when energy costs fall, business expenses decrease.
