Striking a balance between subsidizing fuel and protecting the consumer

[21st March 2022] - Amid the rising price of fuel products on the global market, the Government of Saint Lucia has decided to strike a balance between having to subsidise fuel and protecting the consumer from a steep increase in prices at the pump. As of Monday, March 21st, the price of gasoline and diesel will increase by one dollar while the 20 and 22lb cylinders of cooking gas will continue to be subsidised. Prime Minister Pierre says that while the government must find ways to generate revenue to run the country’s affairs, the people of Saint Lucia will continue to come first.
