    this is what you call “giving with one hand and taking with the other” .

    And all these TAXES collecting on petroleum products and the roads in such a mess. Government can’t get a road work project going. Where the funds??????????.

    The price of gasoline and diesel could be much less expensive in Barbados. This DLP government has imposed a 50% Excise Tax, 17.5% VAT, and 20 cents per liter Cess Tax on fuel making the price astronomically high to Bajans.

    So while the price of oil on the world market continues to plummet, the “pain at the pump” for Barbadians is because Government is raking in millions of dollars off the backs of its hardworking residents.

    In other words, you are punished for simply owning a car to drive around your family and for owning a business to get goods to your customers. In the final analysis, the end user feels the pinch.

    Every body in Barbados with a back yard or a front yard should have a grill by now. Just in case, prepare yourself and don’t let pride make you starve.

    It seems we are paying more because we don’t get our gas from overseas but in the Caribbean, however the Caribbean should be reflecting the change in prices throughout the world not trying to rob us.
