Barbadians to pay more for gasoline and diesel


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$2.82 per litre to $2.91, an increase of nine cents per litre.

The price of diesel will move from Bds$1.95 to $2.09, 14 cents more. Kerosene will now retail at $1.05 cents per litre, up from 90 cents.

Meanwhile, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) will now retail at Bds$135.16 per 100 lb. cylinder, down from Bds$137.95, a decrease of $2.79.

The price of the 25 lb. cylinder is now $38.89, a decrease of 61 cents, while the 22 lb. cylinder will cost $34.39, down by 53 cents.

The price of a 20 lb. cylinder has moved from $31.75 to $31.26, a 49 cents saving.

The Energy Division explained that the adjustments in retail prices were due solely to changes in the CIF (cost, insurance and freight) of these refined products.

    Look Woodbourne aint producing enough in St. Philip plus i dont eve think we refine gas here anyway so it probably goes to Trinidad to get refine anyway and the amount of oil we get here aint enough to meet the demand we have, not even nearly so im guessing these import costs shipping and all that might be the reason why the cost is always fluctuating. if its not that then maybe Moody or bills got government in a squeeze, who knows. Im sure the UAE and Nigeria had some issues following low oil prices but who really knows, maybe Mattthew know.

    The people who walked for a cure for cancer should now walk against rising prices. The price increase will be passed on to the consumers of all goods and services impacted by the gasoline; that is EVERYTHING. One hopes that inflation does not spiral out of control.

    The highest gas price in the Caribbean, thanks to Owen Arthur that said NO to Petrocaribe deal when Chavez made the offer years ago. Not to say that the Barbadian children have no right to drink milk because is too expensive. Nowhere in the world the milk cost so much, a basic nutrient for the children’s growth. An even a tooth paste cost 3 times more in Barbados than anywhere else. And so on. And then we wonder… where is the money going?

      …..and the said Owen Arthur was the Prime Minister of Barbados since 2008.
      You must refrain from starting sentences and not finishing them even if they contain a roll ah SH8.

    “…Kerosene will now retail at $1.05 cents per litre, up from 90 cents.”

    The last fuel adjustment took Kerosene oil from $0.98 to $0.95 per litre.
