Barbados on Sunday: Diesel down, gasoline and LPG up

Diesel? Wait for that big fill-up!

Motorists will be paying slightly less for diesel and kerosene, but a bit more for gasoline in the coming days.

Effective midnight, Sunday, January 15, the retail price of diesel and kerosene will decrease, in keeping with the cost of oil on the international market.  As a consequence, diesel will now be retailed at $2.77 – a decrease of eight cents; while kerosene will cost $1.79 a litre, a saving of 11 cents. However, the price of gasoline will move from $3.07 to $3.09 per litre, an increase of a penny.

Meanwhile, consumers will also have to pay more for liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). The price of the 100-pound cylinder will go up by $4.11 and will now be retailed at $200.83; while the 25-pound cylinder and the 20-pound cylinder will now cost $55.31 and $44.20; an increase of $1.84 and $1.53, respectively.

The above release is from BGIS and is embargoed until Sunday, January 15, 2012 at 7pm… so don’t tell anyone until then. Okay?  🙂
