The St. Lucia government
has announced a marginal
increase in the price of fuel
as it warned that that the global events that
gave led to the increases in the price of oil
will seriously affect its ability to raise revenue
and maintain social programs.
Prime Minister Phillip J. Pierre in a radio
and television broadcast last week said the
government has already started to feel the
effect of loss revenue being collected as a
result of the ongoing situation which he
said was “beyond our control.”
He listed among them the military invasion
of Ukraine by Russia and the resultant
high prices for oil and petroleum products
on the global market.
Pierre said his government has decided
to strike a balance between having to subsidize
fuel prices and protecting the consumer.
“Effective March 21, 2022 the price of
gasoline and diesel will increase by one
Eastern Caribbean dollar from $13.95 to
$14.95 a gallon. The government will continue
to subsidize the 20-pound cylinder of
cooking gas,” Pierre said.
He said that the collection of excise tax
on gasoline and diesel is needed to finance
government operations including the management
of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The government has removed most of
the remaining COVID-19 restrictions that
have been in place since the first case of

last Saturday at the Diplomatic Center
in Port of Spain.
He said that after meeting with health
officials, a decision was taken to remove
most of the COVID-19 restrictions as of
He also announced that restrictions on
nightclubs, parties, music and entertainment
will also be removed.
But he cautioned patrons at those venues
to exercise control.
He also said all restrictions that were in
place for rivers and beaches will be removed
Rowley said as of last Monday people
entering Trinidad and Tobago will be
allowed to use an antigen test.
He said the Travel Pass will remain
in place for a little while longer but he
anticipated that very soon the government
would be able to remove it.
Rowley also announced that the safe
zone arrangements that were in place will
He stressed that now that the country
is re-opening, the onus is on the population
to remember that the COVID-19 virus
Rowley praised health care workers for
getting T&T out of the dark days it was in,
