Effective tomorrow (June 23), Jamaicans will pay ‘next-to-nothing’ less at the pumps as the State-owned refinery, Petrojam, marginally slashed its base prices.

For a second week running, Petrojam, in its petroleum product price index, advised that 87 octane gasoline will sell for $0.25 lower than last week, closing at J$215.39 per litre.

The marginal decrease was consistent for 87 and 90 octane gasoline as well as propane and butane. On the other hand, automotive diesel, its ultra-low-sulphur counterpart and kerosene all recorded price hikes, which take effect on Thursday.

It is expected that retailers will add their mark-ups to the announced prices.
