Gas and diesel prices up

Effective midnight Sunday, Barbadians will be paying 17 cents more at the pumps for a litre of gasoline and 18 cents more for a litre of diesel.

However, the price of kerosene will decrease by one cent per litre.

In a statement, the Division of Energy said the retail price of gasoline will move up from $2.85 per litre to $3.02 per litre, while the price of diesel will be rise from $2.12 per litre to $2.30 per litre. The new price of kerosene is $1.21 per litre, down from $1.22 per litre.

“These adjustments in retail prices are due solely to changes in the CIF [Cost, Insurance and Freight] of these refined products,” the statement released by the Government Information Service added. (BGIS)

      Mate I wish we paid $2.85 for our fuel here in England! We pay on average $3.60 bds per litre. And gas/electricity bills averages $540 bds per month!! Its a total rip off. Yours is just starting to rise. They did it gradually over here til it got to the astronomical prices it is now. Thank America and their “wars on terror” for the prices…

      Yes the Government is showing that it has absolutely no respect for the people and is indifferent to the hardships they are facing.
      Oil prices have fallen significantly since July last year so freight would have come down. I doubt that insurance rates have suddenly gone up but they are trying to fool us with this garbage.

BAJANS ARE nothing but the Clowns in the Caribbean, it has been proven time and time again, makes no sense debating it. Some talking about parking cars and not buying gas for about two days, who wanna talking about a Bajan would justify all his and her reasons why them must drive.

    I live on an island on the west coast of Canada. Gasoline prices this morning in my area are $1.78 BDS/L. Diesel is $1.93 BDS. Fuel in Canada is taxed heavily to the tune of $0.365 BDS/L included in the price.
    We saw gas under $1.54 ($1 CDN) for all of 4 days when oil was $48/bbl US.
    There is no correlation between gas prices and the price per barrel of crude.
    It is about what oil companies want it to be and what governments want as a ride on the gravy train.

    These people told sensible people back then about some lag time FOOLISHNESS that it takes time for the low prices to be felt here,not knowing that it works the other way too….the lag time when prices rise on the Intl market.

    The thing is prices have not even risen or if they did,…….there is NO LAG time…..this CARING Government up the prices RIGHT AWAY….lord have mercy !…wonder what they will tell Bajans now !

    How come the price has gone up, when oil/gas prices worldwide have fallen. This is really bad news. Somebody is making excess profits. Here in the UK petrol/gas prices have been falling, and supermarkets have been vying with each other to see who can be cheapest. You need the same in B`dos. Good luck.

    Mr. Carson Cadogan,
    are you implying that there is a wider world where other players can actually impact oil prices, and the lesser ones such as a country in the West Indies with a population circa 300 000 and no natural resources to speak of, would just have to adjust as best they can since they import oil ?

    It’s amazing what people can learn if they use the internet for something other than Facebook.
