#5066: ANADIP: Gas Stations to Close for 3 Days (fwd)
From: Max Blanchet <MaxBlanchet@worldnet.att.net>
According to Radio Métropole, ANADIP
(the National Association of Petroleum Products
Distributors) has announced that gas stations
nationwide will be closed for 3 days starting on
September 11 to protest the recent increase (44%) in
the price of petroleum products. According to ANADIP,
this decision was arrived at unilaterally and has reduced
the profit margin of distributors.
For his part, Camille Chalmers of PAPDA (Platform for an
Alternative Development) has also criticized this decision
because the GOH has failed to adopt measures that would
provide partial relief to the poorer segments of society
as was done in the DR.
