Fuel in short supply in Honduras amidst general scarcity

The price of high-grade gasoline and diesel fuel increased today by five to 10 American cents in Honduras as supplies ran short due to the delayed arrival of a ship.

Sunday, May 4, 2008

The new price in Tegucigalpa for high-grade gasoline is four dollars and 17 cents per gallon, while diesel fuel is now three dollars and 65 cents, the government's Administrative Commission for Petroleum announced.
Prices in other areas of the country vary depending on their distance from the ports where the fuel is stored.
The increase is a result of the gradual elimination of government subsidies on these fuels plus the continual price increase on international petroleum markets.
