  1. Prophesy
    Inflation (global)
    Those who keep and knows the word of God, knows the time, circumstances and the things that are about to take place….
    But my righteous ones will leave by faith,to dwell in safety and eat the best in the land.. says the LORD God Almighty…
    A pound of the last grade floue($12,and a bottle of oil$15….

  2. Expect prices to go up next cycle. When prices go up they quick to pass onto consumers here. When they drop (such as from July-22, to Aug-23) we see no such drops here. Keep gouging the people Pierre for and behalf of the gas stations owners. Sure to do you well.

  3. @economist. Now to mention the markup on the electricity bills as well. Lucelec is now charging up .971 per kilowatt. A year or 2 ago is was .68. That’s at least a 50% increase on electricity.

  4. @Economist, Exactly the mechanism is not designed to benefit the public. Also Its normal for fuel prices to rise during the summer and winter months due to higher demand for AC and Heating, not forgetting to mention the greedy oil barons.

  5. Gas prices are going up all over the world due to instability. Lucians need to pay attention to commodities market, gas goes up so does food. We don’t have any oil or gas and people expect the government to buy it AT HIGH PRICES PAY TO HAVE IT SHIPPED FOR HIGH PRICE THEN TURN AROUND SELL IT FOR PENNIES MAKE SENSE .

    You dumbass. Nobody is claiming prices don’t go up on the world market. We’re saying when prices drop like they did for an entire year, we saw no corresponding drop here. When prices were less than $20.00 a barrel we did not see fuel here at $6.00 a gallon. You idiotic party hacks will be the death of this country. Clear example why democracy will never work. Too many stupid people have rights to vote. I suggest putting an IQ floor for voting.

  7. Not A Hack, thanks for responding to that IDIOTIC party hack. Throughout the period when prices were dropping and low on the world market we didn’t see the corresponding decrease. In fact most times there were increases especially with the 100lb cylinder. For the past four adjustments when all other prices stayed the same, the 100lb cylinder increased. Is yhe government asking us to do away with the 100lb cylinder. I’m wondering. Now that there are increases in the price of oil on the world market I don’t want to see what it will be like for us consumers, while Jn. Marie will be filling his pockets to help finance the next campaign.
