Petroleum prices fall

Barbadians will be paying less for gasoline, diesel, kerosene and liquefied petroleum gas from midnight tonight.

The retail price of gasoline will move from Bds$3.00 per litre to Bds$2.94 per litre, while the price of diesel will drop from $2.15 per litre to $2.13 per litre.

Kerosene will now retail at $1.05 per litre, down from $1.10. These represent decreases of six cents, two cents and five cents per litre respectively.

Meanwhile, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) will retail at Bds$144.38 per 100 lb cylinder, a decrease of $2.47. The price of the 25 lb cylinder has dropped from $41.81 to $41.19, a decrease of 62 cents, while the 22 lb cylinder will now cost $36.42, down from $36.96, which is 54 cents less. The new price of a 20 lb cylinder is $33.11, 49 cents cheaper.

These adjustments in retail prices are due solely to changes in the CIF (cost, insurance and freight) of these refined products. (BGIS)

    Now this is working, we are benefiting from price reductions when the import price falls, and paying more when it increases. No credit to the government though, we can’t be one sided.

    What amazes me is that people actually believe that the CIF has anything to do with the price fluctuations at the level of increase or reduction at the pump to the consumer.

    “the price of diesel will drop from $2.15 per litre to $2.13 per litre.”….but when you round off $ 2.13 it would become $ 2.15
    So diesel remains the same.
    Didn’t expect such a big drop either since around March/April the price of Gasoline was $2.98

    It does really amuse me how quickly insurance does fall on and how it does go up, I hope someday that the insurance company that does insure the ships that bring the gas find out that the assholes that running the government tricking John public cause it’s I’m possible that so quickly insurance goes down

    What happens after the 1st of July when Diesel and Petrol are priced according to the recent budget. Will we still be subjected to these price changes which go up and down like a Bush Hill operator’s bloomers?
