  1. Yeah but my fing issue is when Lucia want to raise petroleum products case in point barrel of oil raise….. Ok fine so why when the barrel of oil drop like a rock that doesn’t affect the prices in Lucia….. They basically stay the same price…. Is it me or the price of gas in Lucia has been on a steady incline regardless if oil prices being up or down…. Smfhx5

  2. That works out at £0.93 p per litre in UK money and we are paying at least £1.61 per litre, we can only dream of paying these prices

    • @Andrew,

      Yeah, but the folks on the island are paid in EC Dollars, and wages are not comparable to those in the UK. These prices pose a significant impact to the average St. Lucian household.
      For reference, the $1 ECD gets £0.28 GBP, and the transverse is £1 GBP equals $3.55 ECD.

      • And to add to @Debra…everyone is increasing their prices on products but salaries are not increasing.,

  3. How come prices move mostly up. For most of 2020 oil was below $20 a barrel. Lucelec didn’t lower price. Gas prices barely dropped. Now this. Y’all crooks.

  4. raeeeee look they raise bus fare now or is this amount going t be subsidized by the Gov.
    you see what puttin cause now the whole world have to go through this
