NEW CONTROLLED PRICES FOR LIQUEFIED PETROLEUM GAS (LPG)
The Supplies Control Unit (SCU) in the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security and Enterprise is hereby informing the general public that effective Tuesday. February 16th, 2021 new fixed controlled prices will be introduced for the sale of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG). This change now reflects the sale by wholesale volume and retail sale by volume in both urban and rural areas.
The monthly increase in February is due to an upward bound in acquisition prices, as US Gulf Coast stocks continue to dwindle in the face of strong and steady residential demand, particularly for propane.
The general public is advised that the prices established for imported LPG are based on the mixtures of 70:30 (Propane: Butane) only as per requirement of the Belize National Standard Specification for Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) BZS 21:2012. For further information, kindly contact the office of the Belize Bureau of Standards at 822-0446, 822-0447 or via email at [email protected]
