We propose a likelihood-based test for comparing the means of two or more log-normal distributions, with possibly unequal variances. A modification to the likelihood ratio test is needed when sample sizes are small. The performance of the proposed procedures is compared with the F-ratio test using Monte Carlo simulations.
