By BBN Staff: The Ministry of Finance announced that at midnight tonight, the pump price for regular gasoline will increase by 60 cents from $9.61 to $10.21 per gallon, while the pump price for premium gasoline will also increase by 59 cents from $10.31 to $10.90 per gallon.
According to the ministry, the price increases are due to a reduction in supply from the OPEC countries combined with an increase in demand in North America and in the Far East.
The Government of Belize says that it is working closely with the fuel industry to ensure that prices remain as low as possible.
