  1. In every market except St. Lucia diesel is much cheaper than gasoline. SLP robbing the people blind. Go figure…

  2. What percentage of this population uses 100 lbs cylinders, mainly rich people. so who benefits from this. all ministers have 100 lbs cylinders at their homes.

  3. Like “Awa” stated. It’s the rich who benefit from these changes and the not so rich and the poor alike are still left to fend for themselves. Like an article I read emphasized. The child who is not embraced by the village will burn it down to feel its warmth.

  4. Like the great Peter Tosh once said ” The poor man ah feel it” oh when oh when will this government put people first and stop robbing us at the pumps and through cooking gas. Smh
