Gasoline prices gone up … again

Gasoline prices gone up … again

Belize City: Tuesday, October 2, 2018.

Over the last 12 months, Barrow’s government has been strapped for cash and has targeted the retailing of fuel at the pump as the short-term cash cow cow solution to their immediate revenue problem. Long before the international cost per barrel of oil on the world market increased, government consistently jacked up the price per gallon of fuel on a monthly basis. We have seen no consideration by this government for the motorists nor for the small and medium businessman. They have done so by rotating the three major fuels consumed at the pump which is Premium, Regular and Diesel fuels. Last month, they raised the Premium gas, last night it was the Regular and by the 15th October it might just be Diesel, Kerosene or both.
On Tuesday, the Belize Bureau of Standards announced that effective midnight, regular gas was going up by 16 cents per gallon. Regular gas, which was priced at $11.04 prior to the latest increase will now cost $ 11.20 per gallon.
All other prices remain the same with premium at $11.77, diesel at $10.69 and kerosene at $8.34 per gallon until further notice.
