  1. The population of Saint Lucia is a tenant of the government of Saudi Arabia. Whatever the Saudis do, will affect the pricing mechanisms here in Saint Lucia.
    Therefore, we need a more knowledgeable and competent set of workers in that section of government. They can be trained. They need training. Had we had this necessary level of competence, the government would not have lost ground and face, on the pricing mechanism. We would have known that it was long time past its usefulness.
    Today, the forecast, which is more reliable than our GDP growth rate, is for $25 a barrel oil. The Saudis are trying to keep the Iranians and Isis in check by lowering the income coming from their oil operations.


  2. Hi Kenny

    In 2007 when crude was trading at $64 a barrel we paid $9.50 a gallon. In 1998 when trading at $19.00 we paid $6.10. Now it's trading at $34.00 shouldn't the cost we pay be between that. I thought you said no salary increases were necessary because inflation wasn't that big a deal.


  3. It's amazing when fuel prices go up the price of commodities increase but now that the prices are being decreased, we're not seeing such reflections on groceries at the supermarkets. We continue to see the prices going up week after week.
    Our electricity bills are the only reductions thus far.
