We start off this segment of the newscast with some good news. Effective tomorrow, consumers will pay $3.00 less for a 100 pound cylinder of Liquid Petroleum Gas. A bulletin from the Supplies Control Unit reveals that the new controlled price per 100 pound cylinder imported by Belize Gas Limited and Western Gas Company Limited from Pemex in Mexico will drop $3.00 in Orange Walk Town going from $91.00 to $88.00. In Corozal, consumers will now pay a new price of $87.00 dollars. The controlled price of LPG imported by Belize Western Energy Ltd, Zeta Gas and Gas Tomza from within Central America now stands at $86.00 dollars for Orange Walk Town and $85.00 for consumers in Corozal. The across the board decrease of $3.00 dollars is attributed to a current production boom in North America that has led to a downward pressure in oil derivatives including LPG. It is of note that compared to last year; prices per cylinder are $32.00 lower this year.
