Government Enforces Prices Of Liquified Petroleum Gas

Retailers who fail to sell the Liquified Petroleum Gas LPG at the price set by the Government have been warned that they will face the full force of the law.

The warning has come from Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Trade, Nathaniel Williams, who says the Ministry is taking a tough stance on the issue.

The Government announced a reduction in the price of LPG gas effective February 16th.

A 20-pound cylinder of cooking gas will now sell at 29 dollars and a 100-pound cylinder will sell at 138 dollars, down from 197.05.

Mr. Williams says the Consumer Affairs Division is monitoring the Retailers to ensure that they comply with the regulated prices.
Mr. Williams said the Government will compensate Retailers who sell their old stock at the regulated price.
