There was another increase in the price of gas over the weekend and this one has sent the price of a gallon of diesel over the $9 mark. A gallon of diesel is now $9.08. That’s an increase of 17 cents. A gallon of premium rose by 5 cents – from $9.95 to $10. Regular gas jumped twenty cents – from $9.70 to $9.90.
Last week the Prime Minister’s Press Secretary Delroy Cuthkelvin said that there was really nothing they could do, especially as it pertains to diesel since the revenue replacement duty has been removed. He says best case scenario for ease at the pump after the new budget in June.
We’d say that the best bet is a light refinery for diesel fuel.
