Gas, diesel and kerosene prices rise, LPG drops


Barbadians will pay more for gasoline, diesel and kerosene, and less for liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) from midnight, Sunday.

The retail price of gasoline will move from BDS$2.85 to $2.93 per litre, an increase of eight cents per litre.

The price of diesel will rise from BDS$1.99 to $2.07 per litre, an increase of eight cents while kerosene will now retail at BDS$1.03 cents per litre, an increase of 11cents.

Meanwhile, LPG will retail at BDS$136.99 per 100 lb cylinder, down from BDS$140.31, a decrease of $3.32.

The price of the 25 lb cylinder has dropped from $40.18 to $39.35, a decrease of 83 cents, while the 22 lb cylinder will now cost $34.79, down from $35.52, which is 73 cents less. The new price of a 20 lb cylinder is $31.63, which is 66 cents

“These adjustments in retail prices are due solely to changes in the CIF (cost, insurance and freight) of these refined products,” the Division of Energy said in a statement issued by the Government Information Service.

    The last fuel increase was on 6 June 2016, gasoline was increased to $2.88, yet you say that “gasoline will move from BDS$2.85 to $2.93 per litre”.

      CCC put on your glasses or take them off and look CLOSELY AGAIN… could have easily mistaken a 5 for an 8.

      Instead of typing foolishness you C ( M.Knight ) Cadogan should have commented on the two increases in TWO months.

      Next month when it is reduced by 3 or 4 cents Bajans would have been unknowingly paying an increase in gasoline prices every two months……and since you have the figures at hand can you say what was the price of gasoline in April and if that was as a result of an increase or decrease ?

        Gas prices in April, 2016 were $2.63 per litre and Diesel prices were $1.83 per litre.

        The price changes were made on the 11th. April, 2016.

          You have proved my point to a T….gas prices in Barbados have indeed been INCREASED over time despite having been DECREASED on the World Market.

          • Carson C Cadogan July 4, 2016 at 6:54 pm

            Freight or insurance prices have not decreased.

        A bit more information for you.

    You are wrong Carson M Knight Cadogan !
    It was at $2.85

    Your Party is the worst. When the price of oil went down on the world Market , there was not a concomitant decrease in the price at the pump but we know the reason. This wicked Govt is collecting the same level of Tax regardless of the price so if the oil on the world market goes down to $10 per , the level of tax collected will still be maintained. Only bout hey ! Barbados boy ! where the status quo remains intact and the masses are ridden like asses all for perks pensions and per-diems for the politicians

      Tax dollars sorely needed. What I dont understand about this gov is that we hv had this adjustment period but still running bigger deficits.

    • Carson C Cadogan July 4, 2016 at 5:12 pm

    Let us paint our lalopies in white and drive them up Bay Street.

    What about fixing the roads with some of this money you collecting. You getting it ‘hand over fist”.

    • harry turnover July 4, 2016 at 7:14 am

      …..and paint the junctions too….example…Bank Hall cross road…when turning right one has to hope that they are in the rectangle first of all in order to activate the lights and secondly one is not over the missing yellow line as well.

      On another note,the Secretary of DEMS said that it could have been the BEES that started the rumor about the water making people sick not realizing that it could also have been started by a DEM just to give DEM an opportunity to say it was the BEES.
      A similar thing could have occurred with the fore day morning rumor.
      As far as I am concerned those rumors could only have been started by a young malicious,misguided misfit(s) who recently acquired a computer and not by any yard fowl or paling cock.
      Just picture the idiot on the computer typing wid one finger and skinning he teet like a roast dog.

    Sometime ago when the price of oil was dropping like a ” pop kite ” certain people who thought they were smart and had all the sense in the world said that when the price drops on the World market it takes time ( about 3 to 4 months ) for the price to be reflected in Barbados……no problem !!
    ……..BUT was UNABLE to explain why when prices increase on the World market they are INCREASED in LESS THAN A MONTH in Barbados…not realizing that if it took time for a DECREASE it SHOULD also take time for an INCREASE.
    Cost,Insurance and Freight increasing and decreasing at will or when it suits the Division of Energy ?

    • Leroy July 4, 2016 at 9:32 am

      Makes no sense complaining when we already know this is a great revenue earner for Gov, what I am vex at is that they have chosen not to tell us this is the case and they must be sure to have a stable income so the price must remain fairly stable.
      Second is that they have had way more time than necessary to transform our society and cut unnecessary spending. Like 27 mil to maloney for buildings that wont make any $ plus countless projects we know nothing of.
