Changes in the Pump Price of Fuel Effective Midnight Tonight (Tuesday 23 July 2019)
Belmopan. July 23, 2019. The Ministry of Finance announces that at 12:00 a.m. on July 24, 2019, the pump prices of three fuel products will change.
The prices for Regular Gasoline, Diesel and Kerosene will register increases as follows:
Regular Gasoline will increase by 18 cents from $10.37 to $10.55 per gallon;
Diesel Oil will increase by 12 cents from $9.96 to $10.08 per gallon; and
Kerosene will increase by 26 cents from $7.45 to $7.71 per gallon.
The price for Premium Gasoline will remain unchanged at $10.63 per gallon.
These price changes reflect current demand and supply conditions of crude oil in the international petroleum market and fluctuations in the acquisition price of refined fuel products in the countries from which Belize obtains its supplies.
The Government of Belize is monitoring the price movements and supply conditions closely and will work with the fuel industry to safeguard the pump prices paid by Belizean consumers.
