Looking for prices at the pumps

| 28/05/2017 | 3 Comments

Where are the petrol prices listed? I heard there was a way to compare what is available.


Auntie’s answer: Yes, you are right. There is actually a very comprehensive list of prices at each gas (petrol) station on the island. You can find it at the Petroleum Inspectorate website.

The tables on the site list prices by each retailer and at each of their locations, and also includes marinas and independents. In addition, the prices are itemised by premium, regular and diesel.

In theory, these prices are updated every two weeks, according to the website. However, in reality, the updates seem a bit irregular. Listed on the site as of this writing (28 May 2017) are the prices for 10 May 2017. Even if out of date, though, the tables give you a good idea of which stations offer the lowest-price petrol.

    Current Retail Prices in CI$ / Imperial Gallon

    as at Wednesday – May 10, 2017

    Do these prices need updating? Email: fuels@ofreg.ky

    The fuel prices below are collected via phone, email and field survey directly from the fueling outlets and are updated every two (2) weeks.

    Great idea but not when it is not updated and has old info. Just another feature not being utilized because of old info so what’s the point.
    What a waste!
    Oh! Maybe someone is on vacation or called in sick…

    When I first shipped my vehicle to Cayman 25 years ago, I filled it prior to shipment in Miami for US $1.80/gal. The next fillup in Cayman was at CI $2.75/Imp gal. I have comparative records going back over 25 years, and the last time fuel prices in the US were at present levels, the CI price was about $3-3.25. When will the Cayman public stop being economically RAPED by the petrol suppliers?

    Since then there has been at least a 15-20cent increase. Strange how our fuel prices always jump up by such huge increments and rarely drop by that much if and when they do go down.
