Added 17 February 2019


Effective midnight Sunday, February 17, the retail prices of gasoline, diesel and kerosene will decrease, while the price of liquefied petroleum gas remains unchanged.

The retail price of gasoline will be adjusted from BDS $3.60 per litre to BDS $3.56 per litre, a reduction of 0.04 cents.  The price of diesel has decreased by 0.11 cents per litre, moving from $3.00 per litre to $2.89 per litre.  Kerosene will retail at $1.40 per litre, down from $1.44, a reduction of 0.04 cents.

Liquefied petroleum gas will continue to retail as adjusted at December 2, 2018.  The 100lb cylinder will retail for $163.07, the 25lb cylinder at $45.87, the 22lb cylinder at $40.53, and the 20lb cylinder at $36.84.

These price adjustments are in keeping with Government’s policy of allowing retail prices to be reflective of those on the international market. (BGIS)
