By Aaron Humes: The Supplies Control Unit has announced, just in time for Easter, an decrease in the price of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), by 30 cents per gallon.

Prices per hundred-pound cylinder will fall by seven dollars countrywide.

Decreases in acquisition costs for butane and propane drove the change. The general public is advised that the prices established for imported LPG are based on the mixtures of 70:30 (Propane: Butane) only as per the requirement of the Belize National Standard Specification for Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) BZS 21:2012.

The new prices are as follows: $3.85 wholesale, $5.45 per gallon retail in urban areas and $5.55 per gallon in rural areas. Retail prices are $1.25 per pound in urban areas and $1.27 per pound in rural areas.

This means that a hundred-pound cylinder of LPG will now cost $125 in the towns and cities and $127 elsewhere.
