The transport unions have been prevailing on the government to reduce some taxes on petroleum products.

An industrial action by the unions was shelved ahead of the 2022 budget presentation.
But their expectations were not met in the budget.

The transport group says they will continue to persuade the government to help bring down prices of petroleum products.
