The new retail price of gasoline will be Bds$3.38 per litre, up from $3.25. The price of kerosene will be $1.41 per litre, up from $1.19, and the price of diesel will move from $2.46 per litre to $2.37. These represent increases of 13 cents per litre for gasoline and 22 cents per litre for kerosene, while the price of diesel has decreased by nine cents per litre.

Meanwhile, the retail prices of LPG will fall from Bds$155.31 to $154.52 per 100 lb cylinder, a decrease of 79 cents; from $43.93 to $43.73 per 25 lb cylinder, a decrease of 20 cents; from $38.82 to $38.65 per 22 lb cylinder, a decrease of 17 cents; and from $35.29  to $35.13 per 20 lb cylinder, a decrease of 16 cents.

    • Andy Lashley
      Andy Lashley October 1, 2017 at 7:48 pm

      The oil prices isn’t set by Trinidad the OPEC nations pretty much controls the price of oil.
      Renewable energy is what everyone have to invest in Barbados has an endless supply of sunlight Electric cars powered by solar powered electricity supplies.
      That’s the way Barbados and Barbadians should go.

    • Duane Burke
      Duane Burke October 1, 2017 at 9:11 pm

      Andy Lashley not quite correct. Trinidad charges Caricom a price higher than on the International market. They work out a price including freight and duties as if Caricom bought from an OPEC country. Thus they have 2 delivery contracts one for the World and one for Caricom. Then they subsidize theirs. Hence reason why we will never compete in manufacturing with TnT.

    The businesses men know Bajans have a lot of mouth and no action ,and they may grumble,about an increase,but they always pay no matter how much the increase is, so they don’t have to care.

    The sheer volume of vehicular traffic per minute on our roads is mad. Our roads and highways are approx 3-5 seconds away from being backed up even outside of rush hour on the west coast. I wonder what kind of work folks do to be on the road nonstop. Outside of the bludgeoning price hikes for fuel is the environmental impact. The place is hot as hell and more and more vehicles are pouring onto the streets every year. We are setting up ourselves and our Caribbean neighbours for more trouble if we don’t reverse our need for a ride to places within walking distance.

    Gov and their sneeky rev collection scheme. I thought prices were hedged in 3 month blocks. They used this market price excuse last month. Was supposed to read due to cost of freight. O well, I guess that is what they will use in November. Well maybe it may drop back down closer to election. #sillyseason

    Everybody want to have their own cars and lots of people on the road at the same time going in the same direction ending up stuck in traffic and burning gas. Fuel imports are costly and we used a lot of it for multiple purposes but it is time we say to each other you can get ride with me tomorrow or this week I am passing your way, my children go the same school so let me take your along.every time the prices on fuel increase it becomes a burden to some of us not all

    Why is it that world oil & fuel production prices have gone down by 8% according to the international news networks production is up to help with supplies since the hurricanes in the carribean & US to help ease the cost on fuel during this time of rebuilding…??
    Why is it that the price has to go up in Barbados every month..??
    Up by ten cents every month for three months & then they say prices are down by one cent & two cents..??
    It just makes no sense.It just helps to stagnate & bring the economy to grinding halt & aggravate people even more.
    Bus fares & taxi fares should also go up every time fuel goes up..?
    It seems as if transport cost are regulated but no fuel prices…
    Total ignorance especially when Barbados buys fuel from Trinidad at a set contract price.And sells our bunker back to Trinidad at chicken feed prices…????
    Just ridiculous…..!!,!
    Plain & simple price gouging from people who are already taxed to exhaustion levels….,!!!!
    Thank god it will soon be time for bye bye for the DLP for a very very long time….!!!
    I would be very surprised if they get as much as four seats back in the next election????!!!!

    I am still baffled why the government at a recent budget debate (not the last one)had to announce in parliament, an increase in the price of petroleum products when this is something that they do without much fanfare on a regular monthly basis.
    I was under the impression when that announcement was made in parliament that we would no longer have to endure these monthly rises and falls.
