Haiti : Fuel price increases
Haiti's government announced Sunday fuel price increases of up to 20% in an effort to shore up the country's disastrous public finances.
In an official notice published Sunday, signed by the Ministers of Economy and Trade, the Government announces the new prices of fuels at the pump that will come into force on Monday, May 15, 2017.
People rushed to gas stations to top off their tanks before the price rises take effect on Monday.
The government had been negotiating with transport unions for more than a week so Haitians knew an increase was in the works.
