  1. Price of Bread
    As such a basic food item which is the staple of the poor made, the Government should not have increased the price of bread (and bus fares) since it’s know that the price of fuel which affect the price of these items. The Government should have continued to subside these items until the price of fuel started to reduce like now, when it would get back it’s subsidy money.

    If the fuel prices continue to go down the Government should reduce the price of bread and bus fees but will that ever happen.

    The government made a big mistake and we the malawais are suffering

  2. Their friends what own the fuel stations bleed St. Lucians dry already so no point leaving fuel so high. BTW, 13.95 per gallon is what was usually paid when international fuel prices were at these levels they have been at since December 2022. And don’t expect this to last as oil producers just cut production.

  3. That is ridiculous oil prices on the world market has gone down at its lowest why are we still paying so much for fuel.smh

  4. you know all along this government has been lying to us about the gasoline prices. cause if it says that “in keeping with changes in international oil prices and Government’s application of the modified market pass-through petroleum pricing mechanism” the international price of oil had gone down months ago so why is it that we are only getting a decrease only from today? and i am speaking of gas for vehicles

  5. Everyone now will say the reason for the decrease on all gas prices is because a report came out stating that St Lucia was among the highest countries in the region with the highest fuel prices.
    All of a sudden all fuel prices decrease. The government should be ashame for taking advantage of its citizens.

  6. @no Kidding but not now this is being said but the fools not seeing it, the last time the pm gave us some foolish excuse when this was also brought up

  7. Should I say this is a stroke of genius by this administration. Just on Monday the price of gas went up by US$3.00 a barrel on the world market. That’s when you decide to lower the price cause next adjustment you will raise it again. Even with this decrease we are still paying the highest for fuel in the region. I know some hacks like Crow and Low-grade will say we don’t produce oil but all the other countries with lower prices don’t produce oil either. BTW I thought Kenny said we had oil and he and Grenburg were supposed to make millions from it. Pierre make sure this is one of the cases for the Special Prosecutor.
