Petrol prices drop

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

The retail price of gasoline will move from Bds$2.85 per litre to $2.82, a decrease of three cents per litre. The price of diesel will drop from Bds$2.04 to $1.95, a saving of nine cents. Kerosene will now retail at 90 cents per litre, down from 98 cents.

Meanwhile, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) will retail at Bds$137.95 per 100 lb. cylinder, up from BBD$135.27, an increase of $2.68 The price of the 25 lb. cylinder is now $39.50, an increase of 58 cents, while the 22 lb. cylinder will cost $34.92, an increase of 51 cents. The price of a 20 lb. cylinder has moved from $31.28 to $31.75, a 47 cents increase.

These adjustments in retail prices are due solely to changes in the CIF (cost, insurance and freight) of these refined products. (BGIS)

    Government should just keep the price up and use the money to save BArbados

      Thats what they hv been doing all along unsuccessfully. Few months ago, gov stated they had a 300 mil foreign $ savings bc the price of oil on intl markets were at the lowest in years,,now imagine if oil had stayed at over usd $100 a barrel instead,,we would be all eating rocks by now. What needs investigating is why are we paying more now or the same as we were when oil was at $125 a barrel and oil is at $45 now?? And these fools in gov are hell bent on selling bntcl if they havent already, why would gov allow a private company to entirely control the purchase and selling of oil, not to mention if bl&p has an interest in bntcl, bl&p can generate increased profits simply by manipulating the price of oil without even touching the kw/hr price.

      The story says the price change is effective at midnight. Maybe you should check after 12:00am.

        Gasoline in September is selling at $2.82 per litre in Barbados.
        I want to know what was the price in JANUARY not up or down from last month to confuse people into thinking they got a REAL decrease.

    Is three cents recognizable anymore?, thought with the new “approx.” calculation and no-cent distribution , we go straight to five cents., in other words; will I get two cents back?

  17. harry turnover September 5, 2016 at 7:37 am

    @ Wayne T. Griffith… Yes !!..tell him to check this morning…but there is no such thing as 12.00 am or 12.00 pm.
    It is either 12 NOON or 12 MIDNIGHT.
