LPG down to low of 92 bucks

Falling prices on the world market for fossil-based fuels have finally been trickling down to Belizean consumers with pump prices now ranging from $7.21 for a gallon of diesel to $7.88 for a gallon of premium gasoline in Belize City.

On Friday, January 16, more good news came for consumers when it was announced that effective Saturday, January 17, 2015, the price for the 100-pound cylinder of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), the most common cooking fuel, which is also called “butane”, would fall by $6.00, slashing again what had been recorded as the lowest price tag for LPG in 2014.

It means that consumers in Belize City will pay $92 for the large cylinder of LPG in the city, although consumers in Punta Gorda would pay $97, due to added distribution costs, for LPG sourced from Mexico. The price for LPG sourced from Central America, which burns a little faster than the Mexican mix, is even lower in the city, at $90 per cylinder.

A year earlier, on January 17, 2014, the 100-pound cylinder was tagged at $125. Today’s prices represent a decline of roughly 26%.

Currently, Belize City and Corozal pay ninety dollars per hundred-pound with Punta Gorda paying ninety five dollars per hundred-pound. Meanwhile the controlled price per hundred pound cylinder for butane which is imported from within Central America and distributed by Belize Western Energy Limited, Southern Choice Butane, Zeta Gas and Gas Tomza Limited will also see a decrease in prices of three dollars. Belize City and Corozal currently pays the least as it is presently priced at eighty eight dollars and Punta Gorda price is set at the highest, being ninety three dollars. Those however will drop by three dollars come tomorrow. As it pertains to LPG from Belize Natural Energy, the price per hundred pound cylinder is eighty five dollars, where available, namely, Burrell Boom, San Ignacio, Belmopan and Benque Viejo del Carmen. According to the release the prices placed on the imported butane are based on the ratio of propane to butane. It ended by saying, quote, “A current production boom in North America has led to a downward pressure on oil derivatives including LPG. Consequently, acquisition prices have lent to a decrease of three dollars for both Central American importers and PEMEX. Compared to 2014, LPG prices are at an average of thirty two dollars lower on the hundred pound cylinder.”
