If you’re heading out to buy butane, you’ll need an extra two bucks because the prices have increased as of Monday. That puts the price in Belize City and Corozal at one hundred and twelve dollars. In Orange Walk, the cooking gas is being sold for a hundred and thirteen dollars while in Belmopan and San Ignacio the price of the hundred pound cylinder is a hundred and fourteen. Further west, in Benque the price is a bit higher at one hundred and fifteen dollars. But as usual, the highest prices are in the south due to transportation cost. So if you’re down in Dangriga, you’ll be paying a hundred and sixteen dollars for butane or a hundred and seventeen if you’re buying in Punta Gorda.
