By Breaking Belize News Staff: In an announcement that brings good news for Belizean households and businesses, the Supplies Control Unit (SCU) under the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise, has stated that Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) will have new controlled prices effective September 8th, 2023.

The new price structure will cover sales by wholesale volume as well as retail sales in both urban and rural regions of the country. A unified price has been set for the import wholesale across all districts at BZ$3.55 per gallon.

Import Wholesale Prices (Per Gallon):

  • Belize District: $3.55
  • Cayo District: $3.55
  • Orange Walk District: $3.55
  • Corozal District: $3.55
  • Stann Creek District: $3.55
  • Toledo District: $3.55

On the retail front, the price per pound in all urban areas remains consistent at BZ$1.18, translating to BZ$5.15 per gallon.

Retail Prices:

  • Belize City: $1.18 per lb / $5.15 per gallon
  • Belmopan: $1.18 / $5.15
