Petroleum prices increase

The public is hereby notified that in keeping with the schedule of price changes under the modified market pass-through system, fuel prices will be adjusted today, Monday, April 29, 2013.

The amendments reflect price increases for recent imports of refined petroleum products.

With the exception of the 100 pound cylinder of LPG, fuel prices in Saint Lucia are still below that of some of the Eastern Caribbean countries whose prices as of Wednesday, April 24, 2013 are as follows:


The public is further notified that the next price change will be due on July 22, 2013.
