    What ching ching can anyone tells me weather we produce gas in St lucia ?No government has any control on gas prices so all of you that want to blame government are just colour blind and strictly hacks.

    • I'm still waiting for Guy to find the $6.80 Kenny was making on gas.
      BTW Chas said he signed a document for gas prices to decrease at his victory rally, I think the yellow hard hat was on too tightly.
      I'm waiting patiently.

  3. It's always we the people who get the shaft when politics play games with our reality in life especially when truth an lies are at war in the mouths of who we trust,so weather is gas from our rear or the auto mobile we drive our pay eh go rise to help with none them.

  4. by my estimation, at the next gas ptice review, GASOLINE WILL BE AT $14.00 a GFALLON.

  5. If people would actually follow what going with OPEC and shale oil countries they would shut it. If it were not for UWP gas would be over $15 a gallon.
