Gas hike hits fishermen hard

Faced with a $1 in­crease per litre in the price of Su­per un­lead­ed fu­el, fish­er­men from South Trinidad are call­ing on the Gov­ern­ment to es­tab­lish an out­let so they can pur­chase reg­u­lar fu­el at a cheap­er price.

Reg­u­lar fu­el is a low­er grade of fu­el com­pared to su­per un­lead­ed and pre­mi­um un­lead­ed. How­ev­er, on­ly two out­lets in San­ta Flo­ra and Care­nage sell reg­u­lar fu­el and since the price in­crease, fish­er­men say they can no longer af­ford to buy Su­per gas.
