Gas, diesel and LPG prices rise, kerosene drops

Barbadians will be paying more for gasoline, diesel and Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) from midnight Sunday.

They will however be paying less for kerosene.

The price of gasoline will be adjusted from $2.84 per litre to $2.91 cents per litre, an increase of seven cents, while the new price of diesel will be $2.12, up from $2.07, a five cents increase.

Kerosene will now be six cents cheaper per litre, moving from $1.06 to $1.00 per litre.

Meanwhile, the retail price of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) has also risen.

The 100 lb cylinder, which previously sold for $134.37, will now retail at $147.68. The price of the 25 lb cylinder has increased from $38.69 to $42.02, while the 22 lb cylinder will now be sold at $37.14, up from $34.21. The new price of the 20 lb cylinder is $33.77.

The new prices represent increases of $13.31 per 100 lb cylinder; $3.33 per 25 lb cylinder; $2.93 cents per 22 lb cylinder; and $2.67 per 20 lb cylinder.

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. (BGIS)

      The idiots with mini busses and ZR’s are using at least half of each tank of fuel in Kerosene and half diesel or higher kerosene columes causing greater pollution and nausea as well as damaging their diesel engines and the seals on them.

    GODDAMN IT WHY ARE THEY TRYING TO KILL MUH WID THOSE BUS AND ZR FUMES …..IE Kerosene mostly as it burns much more smokey and pollutes sooo much more but it is used because it is cheaper….. That needs to be brought to a stop as it is not good for any road users health, it also reduces night time visibility trying to get my car’s headlights to see through the smoke from behind these public service vehicles.!

    I never understood why Barbados has the 17th highest prices for fuel in the world. Saint Lucia who is less then 100 miles away fuel is 40% cheaper.

    How comes gas and diesel gone up and kerosene gone down dont they come on the same ship? If they’re say prices gone up cause of insurance and freight charges wouldn’t it effect all the products and not just the two main money makers?? I wish bajans would really stand up to wanna law makes
