  1. I don't see the difference in the gas now and before. When Kenny has to bring down prices, he brings it up, when he has to bring it lower he take out a few cents that don't make any sense when in the supermarket they reduce the price of one good, they put it on other goods, so that way we don't pay less for any thing in St.Lucia. WE HAVE TO STOP KENNY FROM FOOLING PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY.

  2. This is what is happening. We do not know what mechanism is being used. Not even customs getting that information now. The government will manipulate it how they want and will use it as a campaign tool in the end.

    • looks like you've been brain washed. They are all checking for their pockets and fat bank accounts. so they will feed us shit and call it food. whether it be 3 months or 3 weeks they would still not pass the benefit down to the consumer.

  6. Are those prices correct? Gasoline was 12.35 prior to this change so how can they say it was 11.83?

    Further more, the price of oil is even lower than when the fuel at the pumps were reduced to 10.65 so why such a mediocre reduction??

    This is insulting lucians.
