Another Fuel Increase Means More Gas Pains at the Pump!

It seems that where the price of fuel at the pumps is concerned, it’s all bad news. We wish we could tell you different tonight, but we can’t. News Five has confirmed that at midnight tonight the price of Premium Fuel will go up by a whopping fifty-four cents at the pump, taking it to ten dollars and forty-nine cents. Kerosene is also going up – by thirty cents. The only silver lining in that dark cloud is that the pump prices for Regular and Diesel remain the same, but sources in the Ministry of Finance are telling us that those will follow suit very shortly. We were unable to get comment from the Ministry of Finance to verify if the increase is due to higher import duties or higher acquisition costs. We can tell you that we’ve seen no hike in the price per barrel of oil to explain the latter, so it’s likely that G.O.B. is working its tax magic.

    It is just too bad that the we, the wise, will have to pay along with the fools who voted for the UDP and the Petrocaribe drinking spree. Goma-time is here and starting to hit hard. We clearly saw it coming, but the majority were fools and didn’t get to see farther than their noses.
