Screen_Shot_2014-05-09_at_3.52.14_PMThe last time we reported on the price for a hundred pound cylinder of butane we were not the bearer of good news, but tonight we are because the price for Liquid Petroleum Gas has seen a reduction which came into effect yesterday.

The new controlled price per 100lb cylinder of butane imported by Belize Gas Limited and Western Gas Company Limited from Pemex in Mexico, which saw a reduction of $13.00, is as follows: Belize City $115.00, Belmopan and San Ignacio $117.00, Benque Viejo Del Carmen $118.00, Orange Walk $116.00, Corozal $115.00, Dangriga $119 .00 and Punta Gorda  $120.00.

As for the controlled price per 100lb cylinder of LPG imported from within Central America, it saw a reduction of $16.00. The prices are as follows.  Belize City $112.00, Belmopan $114.00 and San Ignacio $114.00, Benque Viejo Del Carmen $115.00, Orange Walk $113.00, Corozal  $112.00, Dangriga $116.00 and Punta Gorda $117.00.

Domestic price per 100lb cylinder for LPG distributed by Belize Natural Energy Limited and sold at its depots countrywide will be as follows. In Burrell Boom, San Ignacio, Belmopan, Benque Viejo Del Carmen and Punta Gorda Depot retail price at $108.00.

The general public is advised that the prices establishment for the imported LPG are based on the mixture.  Of note is that Propane prices have dropped sharply with butane keeping an average levelled price which is reflective of the changes in temperate/continental conditions as winter months dissipate into the summer month. During the month of May, butane surfaced as the more costly of the two commodities with an average at $52.92 US per barrel compared to propane averaging $44.52 US per barrel. This has reflected a sharp decline of $16.00 on a hundred pound cylinder for Central America importers while Pemex prices decreased by $13.00
