Another Change in Butane PricesBelmopan, 2nd December, 2010-
The baking of your ham, turkey and black cake will add to the pinch in your pockets this Christmas. That’s because the price per hundred pound cylinder of butane will be jacked up by a whopping eight dollars across the board. So brace yourselves for the new prices: as of Friday, Belize City and Corozal residents will pay one hundred and twenty-two dollars for cooking gas and those are the lowest figures. It’s a hundred and twenty-three dollars in Orange Walk and in the west, Belmopan and San Ignacio consumers will pay a hundred and twenty-four. Even further west, butane will sell for a hundred and twenty-five dollars in Benque.
