Gas Price Review - Week Ending Oct 31, 2007
This week PetroJam announced increases ranging from $1.96 to $ 2.54 on 87, 90 Octane and Diesel respectively. The announcement of ex-refinery prices will once again push local gas prices up. With Oil Prices surging to new highs of $96.24 per barrel of Oil expect continued increases in gas prices in Jamaica in the coming weeks.
Highs and the Lows
The prices ranged from $56.29 to $59.65, $59.03 to $63.46 and $58.59 to $60.39 compared with $55.41 to $60.51, $58.23 to $64.51 and $55.99 to $61.32 for 87 Octane, 90 Octane and Diesel respectively for the week before.

Interesting this week, the differences between highs and lows decreased (as shown in the table above) compared with last week, which could suggest that there is now indeed a resistance to the higher prices. This however could be just reflective of the available data. s
On thing motorist must do is try to avoid the traffic congestion as far as possible. Leaving earlier where possible and leaving work later might be better option than sitting idle in the Traffic. Sitting in traffic for two(2) hours for a regular thirty minute(30) drive does not look like a good option considering the increased gas prices at the pump
