Barbadians flocked to fuel stations across the island after rumours that there was a gas shortage and supplies would soon run out.


However, Government sources as well as Chief Executive Officer of Rubis Caribbean, Mauricio Nicholls, denied there was any such scarcity.

The officials did have some potentially good news though. They said prices at the local pump, like this one at Esso, Black Rock, could go down eventually once international prices remained low.

    The prime minister said late last year as oil prices fluctuate the difference would be passed on to the consumers and so on and oil prices has moved from $110 us to $47 us a barrel and all we got was a 4 cents decrease total madness and highway robbery.
