Gas prices going up

Barbadians will start paying more for gas, diesel and kerosene and less for liquid petroleum gas (LPG) from midnight tonight.

The Ministry of Energy has announced that in keeping with the landed price of petroleum products, the retail price of gasoline has been adjusted from $3.03 to $3.11 per litre, an increase of eight cents; diesel has increased by seven cents from $2.78 to $2.85 per litre; while the price of kerosene has moved from $1.82 to $1.86 per litre, an increase of four cents.

Meanwhile, consumers will pay less for LPG, commonly known as cooking gas.

The 100-lb cylinder has been reduced from $180.16 to $179.67, the 25-lb cylinder from $50.14 to $50.02, and the 22-lb cylinder from $44.29 to $44.18. The 20-lb cylinder has seen a reduction from $40.26 to $40.16.

This represents adjustments of 49 cents, 12 cents, 11 cents and 10 cents respectively.

    Go electric !! Barbados is not a big land mass so driving range on an electric vehicle would not be a big issue.

    Most of you who are upset should stop watching “days of our lives” and take a look at BBC and CNN in order to get a WORLD VIEW of things ……..WAKE-UP.

    We are spending a lot all over Europe. I am in Italy and it is killing us especially when you live in an area with no public transport. If I had the choice I would use public transport and sell the car truly! At least you don’t have fuel bills to heat the house in the Winter too. We all dread these bills but you cannot stay in the cold. SOLAR PANELLED CARS OR ELECTRIC IS THE WAY TO GO!!!

    I’m so glad and I’m sure the 29 other customers that have already swapped to the all electric Nissan Leaf here in Barbados are as well. It’s amazing once you’ve owned an Electric car for a month or so you tend to forget about the cost of Gas. Check out http://www.facebook.com/megapower365
