  1. When will we see a complete reduction in fuel prices in St Lucia Mr Prime Miniztet?For Christ sake its a new year we need a break please.

  2. i want to know in what year u all think things will get better….people all things here are temporary and destructive..let us put faith in Jesus Christ….be content be it little or great…cuz the government is not here to bring relief….taxes are collected from civil servants and others every month…weh dat money going? monies being handed over to build hospital weh da money??? i cant understand why people still depend on govt…they aint putting nobody first…all things are temporary and destructive..

  3. @vale charcter & the rest of jackasses……Do we produce oil ?? How much does it cost the government to purchase from the producer??? How much does it cost the government to have it ship here; yes ship here fools buying is one thing delivery is another expense?? Now after they do all that and bring it to the refinery and add how much chemicals to keep it fresh how much must they turn around and sell it for pennies????. Not to mention the retail has to hire a tanker to distribute it local for yu’ll. I hope that his year yull go learn and educate your selves about the government budget purchases and expenditures. Yull must get involved in the process and learn about the day to day essentials that affect your equally of life, it’s easier said than done when you clear analysis of expenditures.

  4. Pjp why no jobs in st Lucia you are not giving st Lucian’s a break on the gas..putting the people last not first sad

  5. It is the sale of oil per barrel which has been reduced drastically. Our queries are based on that. If the monies were being spent on the intended purpose, I would have absolutely no issues. What are the conditions of our roads? Still in a deplorable state! Mwen meme

  6. Ask low grade how the other islands around us fuel so low. A Jackass want to call right thinking St.Lucians jackasses.

  7. Lucian whatever grade you might be, why can you disagree with out you constantly appearing like you are always high and drank. Is it only for St. Lucia all these processes are implemented. And if not why is the fuel and by extension commodities in our sister Islands
    so much lower? If you are not feeling the squeeze because these high prices are then used for you to get government contracts, then keep in mind the vast majority of us aren’t so connected.

  8. Ironic that no prices were adjusted but headline says “New fuel price adjustments” Next time save us the trouble of reading the entire article and headline “Fuel prices remain the same”

    @HighGrade said Fuel prices are going up worldwide… I enjoyed your commentary prior in defense of your government but this proved that you’re a true hack. Cause even when prices were being and continue to reduce our prices remain highest in the oECS

  9. Okay a little reprieve of $8.75 for users of 100lb cylinder. However when the next adjustment comes and it will increase it will be by over $20.00.
    I don’t know why the biggest JACKA$$, low-grade keep wearing these red sunglasses. Man wake up and smell the coffee. The price of fuel on the world market has been decreasing since July but ours keeps fluctuating, with more increases than decreases. When will we be able to enjoy the decreases as per world prices.
    We lambase the government for fuel prices but don’t forget LUCELEC, with their wicked fuel surcharge. This one has not adjusted their price, not once since fuel prices have been dropping but let it increase on the world market and your electricity bill will hit the roof.

  10. Oil prices have fallen and raised and then fallen again, currently its falling but St Lucia prices remain high. If this is a accurate reflection of markets this am lost, not because we don’t proceed something means we have to get the worst. We as the people have to demand that the ( government’s) Stop making us foot the bill for development and let the investors do so, we are struggling in this island but government will say we are good smh

  11. @Stinger & the rest of you fools I was looking for the diamond in the ruff who has took up my suggestive initiative of learning government budgets and perceived expenditures but of course it’s too much of thinking and comprehension for you simpleton clowns. Which island has cheap gas prices ?? No islands in the OECS has cheap gas prices some + or minus a dollar here and there but the high price for the commodity is the same. Stop equating St Lucias budgetary expenditure to those of our smaller neighbors fools they are not the same. There will never be “cheap” gas prices ever again on the world market it’s design this way buy those who produce it. So if you clowns believe your yellow Santa can make St Lucia great again by lowering or substituting gas prices without hiking or hiding or attaching that offset to something else yull are bigger fools than I have anticipated.

  12. Lucian low grade maybe st.lucia do have oil and natural gas but Kenny and pjp sign a secret deal with jack grainburg now for 20 years our seabed are in the courts we can’t explore for the oil or the gas my point is your excuse for the oil prices being so high is bs the real reason is fff the man who own all the gas stations in st.lucia

  13. This news article indicates that at present there are 22 comments under the post. However, I am not able to see the citizen’s reaction to the article. I went to check several other articles and was able to see the comments under there. St. Lucia Times, please don’t be bias and allow the public to view all comments under the post.

  14. Joseph then is it the people that ll make a good road fore tankers or reffinatry to produce full?????

  15. Thunder strike all of those idiot government and who posted this saying we should mind our comment, thunder from Kaduna fire y’all, fools rolling the country. God punish you.

  16. No one will teach us when it’s time we all gonna turn back and fight against bad government …

  17. What’s wrong with making the population pay hefty for their stupidity. Vote SLP always. Teytu!

  18. The high grade or whatever your call yourself, it is truly sad you cannot see beyond color. I implore you to go look for job and stop allowing this guys to use you as a puppet, it’s very embarrassing on your part.
