Fuel Price, When price of gas, petroleum products increase in Haiti
This picture illustrate the situation most Haitians find themselves when the price of fuel price increases. This includes any petroleum product.
Will Haitian Government Risk Adjusting Fuel Prices?
Beginning in January 2010 Haiti stopped adjusting fuel prices fearing economic instability. Instead it subsidized fuel increases.
Haiti is increasing its deficit by selling fuel to the Dominican Republican (DR) at 20% per gallon less than what the DR pays for its own fuel.
The government of Haiti cannot continue to let the deficit climb, but it is reluctant to adjust fuel prices because it will cause social unrest and rouse the opposition.
