Butane prices going up on Saturday

An increase of ten dollars in the price of liquid petroleum gas or butane was announced today, but it only applies to gas imported from Mexico. The new price of a hundred pound cylinder of butane in Belize City and Corozal will be one hundred and eighteen dollars while in Orange Walk it’s a hundred and nineteen. Belmopan and San Ignacio residents will pay one hundred and twenty dollars and in Benque Viejo, the cost is one-twenty-one. Down south, butane will sell for one hundred and twenty-two dollars in Dangriga and for one hundred and twenty-three dollars in Punta Gorda. The price hike takes effect on Saturday and again, it applies only to gas imported from Mexico. So if you’re buying gas from Central America, you should not be paying more.
