Effective tomorrow (June 30), Jamaicans will again pay ‘next-to-nothing’ less at the pumps as the State-owned refinery, Petrojam, unveiled another regimen of marginally slashed base prices.

For the third consecutive week, Petrojam, in its petroleum product price index, advised that 87 octane gasoline will sell for $0.25 lower than last week, closing at J$215.14 per litre.

The marginal decrease was consistent across all major products, with the exception of butane and propane, which rose respective 50 cents and 20 cents higher than last week’s price.

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