Cooking gas shortage and petrol price reduction

Montserrat climbed out a cooking (propane) gas shortage that had gone on for over two weeks, due, according Manager Roselyn Cassell-Sealy, to a breakdown of the ship that transports the product.

Anguilla and Nevis had assisted briefly before they also suffered a similar fate.

While keeping her ‘fingers crossed’, a tanker that was due to arrive over the past weekend did so. The manager confirmed that a regular shipment of the liquid propane gas (LPG) had arrived restoring the situation to some normalcy. She reported that all distributors received their share of cooking gas, advising that the company Delta Petroleum does not anticipate another shortage except something out of the ordinary occurs.

Mrs. Cassell-Sealy once again thanked the Montserrat public for their patience as they suffered through the shortage crisis.

Meanwhile as of last weekend, motorists are enjoying a further but welcome decrease in the cost of petrol which stood briefly at $16.61, now down to $15.45 a long way from $17.50.

The diesel price saw an even bigger drop moving from the recent new of $18.14 while not back to the previous, but $14.87. Sources said the reason for the huge recent increase at the end of January was due to a receipt of a higher grade of diesel, along with some other complex circumstances.

In both instances, residents will have cause for joy, especially with respect to diesel which cost influences the fluctuating fuel surcharge on electricity bills.
