So gas prices are down on STX, finally! Gateway, Cruzan Petroleum, Shuama, Sion Farm and Super Tanks are all down - $3.77 regular and $3.97 premium.

At Cruzan Petroleum they told me they are buying gas from Puerto Rico now and that it is shipped in weekly.

So it seems that it is possible to get cheaper gas from Puerto Rico, after all, as some were discussing here on this board.

WOW.

I asked another station about the lower prices, and they said the same thing.

Let's see what happens to STT prices, since they are closer to the source their shipping cost will be less.

I haven't checked the prices this week but last week regular was priced at $4.299 per gallon so STX has had much better prices from what you all are posting. I need to buy gas this week so if anyone knows who has the best STT prices, please post.

Is this where the gasoline is coming from?

And if so, why has it not been reported in the local media? (unless I missed the story somewhere)

Puma in PR

Our media does very little reporting, so there are many things missed. Most of the media reprints press releases without fact checking or analysis. Forget the radio; they mostly focus on emotion and conspiracy theories.

But, the media is losing credibility throughout the U.S. so it's not just here. Credible news is getting harder to find, IMO.

Democracy assumes a free press. We need a new lexicon for current political and press climate which is government by the corporation for the corporation.

Too few people see the value in paying for "news" because it has been free for so long. Now that loud opinions are mistaken for news, the "news" is shaped by popular opinion and not facts, and the corporations are supporting these opinion outlets because they're more popular than real news stations.

Sad.

Puma gas is considerably more expensive here than at other stations that don't sell Puma gas.

And still over $4.+ on STT everywhere I noticed. Price, imo, should always be whatever market will bear. Gas has been close to $5 for so long that few on STT expect lower prices, and tour prices have risen to maintain profit margins.

Hovensa was stupid. They should have dropped gas prices ahead of the deal to tacitly promise a bright financial future.
