Butane Gas Prices to Go Up Tonight

If you’ve exhausted your supply of butane baking cakes and hams during the Christmas Season and you’re waiting for payday to refuel to your gas tanks then you’re in for quite a surprise.  As of Wednesday the cost of liquefied petroleum gas, LPG, is going up.  The new controlled price per hundred pound cylinder in Belize City, beginning January eleventh, is ninety-seven dollars.   That figure increases by two dollars in Belmopan and as much as five dollars in Punta Gorda.  A release issued late this evening by the Belize Bureau of Standards also confirms the domestic price per hundred pound cylinder distributed by BNE at its various depots.  In Burrell Boom, the cost per tank is eighty-five dollars.  That price remains constant across the country, including Belmopan, San Ignacio and Benque Viejo del Carmen.
