It's time to get the housewife's and kids out on the streets with
their frying pans and skillets? Shouldn't GOB take some of the

From 7 news:
Household managers prepare for another round of butane gas price
increases and this time the prices are sailing over the $100 mark.
Tomorrow in the city, the price of a one hundred pound cylinder of
butane gas will jump $7 and cost you $98; while in Orange Walk you
will be paying $99. In Belmopan it also jumps $7 and that sends it
from $93 to $100. Dangriga residents will also have to fork over $100
for a one hundred pound cylinder. In P.G. the price will be $101; in
San Ignacio $103; and Benque has the national high with $104.
The last price jump was on September 8th and then the prices rose by
an average of $6. We stress that the quoted prices are the controlled
price without delivery. When you add in the delivery fee, in the city,
a one hundred pound cylinder will cost you a blue note ($100).
