No mercy! Gas going up again at midnight

Posted: Tuesday, May 15, 2018. 8:23 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: The Ministry of Finance informed today that with effect from midnight on May 16, there will be adjustments in the pump prices of fuel products as follows:

Belize City Prices:

Premium Gasoline – $11.36 per gallon – down by 3 cents

Regular Gasoline –   $11.14 per gallon – up by 10 cents

Diesel Oil –              $10.60 per gallon – up by 11 cents

Kerosene –              $7.75 per gallon – down by 12 cents

Premium is decreased by 3 cents, while Kerosene is decreased by 12 cents.

Regular, however, is hiked by 10 cents and diesel oil by 11 cents.

There has been a steady increase in world oil prices over the past few weeks due to an increase in demand for the summer months.

This has outstripped the ability of major oil producers to respond with sufficient increases in supply in time.

The Government has engaged with the key importer, PUMA, to rationalize the delivery cost of the supply into Belize.

“The Government of Belize is concerned, however, that recent developments in the Middle East and Iran, as well as the announcement of further sanctions against Venezuela, will result in a significant increase in world oil prices,” a release from the Ministry explains.

The government says that it is monitoring the situation very closely and will, therefore, continue to work with PUMA and with all local suppliers, wholesalers, and retailers to ensure that any increases are kept to a bare minimum and remain for the shortest possible time.
