  1. Poor People fed up! says:

    On second thought the price is still too high, if little St. Kitts could lower their prices to about EC $10 we can do it as well. I am not here to bring down the government but to see to it that they do the right thing for the people and country. For this $77,000,000 deficit to be paid off you will have to lower the prices to below EC $10 at the pumps.

    It could have been lowered some more but will do for now, let’s hope for further reductions in April.

      How did you come to the determination that it could have been lowered more? Was this enlightenment the result of knowledge, guess work, hear say, etc? I am at a loss!!!
