Fuel Pricing Policies
"Pricing policy: Although petroleum product prices are deregulated in Jamaica, ex-refinery prices continue to be set based on import parity prices. The current pricing mechanism is being administered by Petrojam, which is government-owned. Government in Apr 2011 reduced ad valorem tax on fuel, reinstituted in Jan 2010, from 15% to 10% on a temporary basis, and said that it would be reviewed quarterly.
Information: Petrojam posts historical and current ex-refinery prices, inclusive of taxes, on its Web site. Distribution margins are added to the posted prices, and retail prices can be quite a bit higher."
