Fuel Prices to Increase, Again

Fuel prices are taking a hike at midnight on April eleventh. This evening the government confirmed that regular gasoline will increase by thirty-nine cents from ten dollars and twenty-one cents to ten dollars and sixty cents per gallon. The price for diesel will increase by three cents from ten dollars and twenty nine cents to ten dollars and twenty six cents per gallon. According to the Ministry of Finance, the increases are influenced by “the tightening in the production of oil from the OPEC countries and by sustained high demand in the North American and Asian markets.”  G.O.B. says that it is closely collaborating with the ‘fuel industry’ to ensure that prices remain as low as possible”- a statement which the Government has been repeating since February fifteen and in five separate occasions. And fuel prices still remain above the ten dollar mark.
