The announcement was made by the Belize Bureau of Standards that the price of premium gas, which was actually 14 cents less per gallon than regular gas since the price adjustment of September 20, would increase from $10.99 a gallon to $11.92 a gallon in Belize City.
Last Wednesday, the price of regular gasoline, which had been tagged at $10.21 since August 16, increased by 92 cents on the gallon, to $11.13.
The price of diesel increased from $9.26 to $9.63, an increase of 37 cents on the gallon.
However, the price of kerosene remains at $5.68 a gallon in Belize City.
