30127068_10211343142042291_7710054509271056384_nOver the past few weeks Belizeans have been saddled with constant increases in the price of fuel which have driven most commercial fuels over the ten-dollar mark at the pumps. Of course we cannot forget the most recent blow to all Belizeans delivered by the 12.5% GST which was applied to data services on April 1st which drove prices for internet even higher, but if you think the bad news ends there then you might want to think again as today GOB announced yet another hike in the price of Butane, the second since the start of 2018.


So if you are planning to fill your one-hundred-pound butane tank tomorrow, then be prepared to pay ten dollars more than what you have been paying. Here in Orange Walk Town it will now cost consumers one hundred and sixteen dollars to fill that one-hundred-pound cylinder.  A release issued by the Supplies Control Unit of the Ministry of Investment, Trade and Commerce earlier today announces the new price for LPG which goes up by ten dollars for one-hundred-pound cylinder across the country. The new prices go into effect, tomorrow April 6th.


This new increase comes less than three months after a hike of seven dollars was implemented to the one-hundred-pound cylinder of LPG on January 13th.


In Corozal and Belize butane price moves from one hundred and four dollars to one hundred and fourteen dollars, while in Belmopan and San Ignacio prices rise from one hundred and six dollars to one hundred and sixteen dollars and in Benque you will now pay one hundred and seventeen dollars for one-hundred-pound cylinder of Butane. Down South in Dangriga the one-pound cylinder will sell for one hundred and eighteen dollars while in Punta Gorda prices will climb to one hundred and nineteen dollars.
