Speaking of which, do anyone of the station owners know the meaning of the word: collusion? They must all be members in good standing with OPEC. Prices on STX have not changed for, what, nine months? As far as I know, there is only one 'scab' at Tide Village who is charging two cents less than the rest. Just wondering who the lucky recipient(s) is/are getting the kickbacks. Sure as heck ain't me. :{

Don't feel bad, same ting here.
Once in a great while we'll get a 10 cent drop which does not last long considering and after that very extremely, short period, it's back up to the $4.599.

Plus, I'd really like to know why we pay a tax on the gas when we still are driving on crappy roads and none of the taxi's pay any road tax and have special discounted gas at some stations?

Prices continue to fall on the mainland. They're talking about maybe sub $2 possible in SC or Tennessee, traditionally lowest in the US. Has it budged down at all on STX?

No, prices have not gone down, and they say it's because the gas they're selling was purchased at the higher prices. That's their story and they're sticking to it.

So what is PUMA's excuse for the high gas prices on STT?

Right now gas on STT is $4.389 for regular which is the lowest we've seen it in ages. Puma gas stations are higher.

Inteesting.

STT is about 50 cents a gallon more than Tortola.

Hate hearing that, especially when stateside prices are so much lower and Hovensa is still charging more for older stock. Bummer! Can't believe Tortola has better price! What are they paying?

The senators are powerless to affect gas prices.

Unless, of course, they sign off on the ABR deal (which I believe they will).

For gas in your car...Support ABR!

According to an article in yesterday's Avis, PR has increased the excise tax on crude. They are predicting a ton of revenue from the increase to cover government programs. So if we do start getting product directly from PR there is bound to be an increase because of this.

I can't understand why many of our current crop of senators seems to plead ignorance about the Hovensa closing and ABR deal. Kenny G seems to be wearing the thorny crown during this particular charade. Get down of the cross mate, we need the wood.

The government has been working on this for two years. Hovensa had published the fact they would cease funding months ago. None of this is a surprise. As far as the senators demanding to see the sales agreement that's absolute crap, stinking of big-government. If I have a business and want to sell it to someone else, as long as that person can obtain the relevant government licenses (or in this case operating agreement), then the details of the sale between two private parties are no business of any government entity (apart from what is reported to the IRS in an annual return).

Senators, get your snouts out of the feed trough and do your job for once. It's your own fault if you haven't been following proceedings and feel left out of the process. The senate's management by crisis approach is tiring to us all.

Agree 100% with your comments about the Senators.

Face it! Our Senators don't know didly squat about budgeting or prior proper planning. Nor do we require them to, it seems.Pick up the phone, send them an email. Write to the newspapers.
Get their behinds in gear! The only way to do so is if they have overwhelming responses to their lack of fiduciary duties.
We elected them, make them do their jobs.

I guess everyone will have to hurry up and use up that pricy old gas in order to see if they lower the price when they get the fresh stuff.

I guess folks on STX are paying extra for the old gas in the entire Hovensa tank farm because they can't afford to tanker the rest of it to the mainland and sell it at current prices without a loss.
