Don’t gas me up!

Over the past two weeks the prices for gas have escalated to 40 cents per gallon.

The petroleum inspectorate said they are looking at possibilities of, or any indication that price-fixing may be happening in order to adequately address the price increase. The new prices have fueled further outrage from consumer advocate George Ebanks, a long time supporter for cheaper fuel prices.

“It’s a total chaos, its a total mess, we’re being ripped off we’re still paying above 300 percent for market prices for fuel in this country,” Mr. Ebanks said.

Other motorist have said gas prices have caused them to scale back spending on other living needs while one motorist Juan Dixon said he knows people who have stopped using their cars and finding other means to get around.

“It’s really hard I know a lot of people that they put the car away and using their bicycle because right now gas is too high, I know people that already not driving their car because the income they have for work is really low,” Mr Dixon said.

The Petroleum Inspectorate said they are in the process of carrying out an updated survey to quantify the average increase across the entire retail network.
