Current (April 2, 2006) BAHAMAS Fuel Prices:
Diesel is just under $4.00/Gal, and Gasoline about $5.00/Gal.
Sorry, cannot quote Caribbean prices - but they will be similarly high.

Our dollar is dropping and the cost of oil is sky rocketing here. Deisel went to NZ$1.14/ltr here today. Petrol(gasoline) went to NZ$1.67/ltr. We seem to be having a price increase every week at the mo.

Price of diesel in western Caribbean

I paid approximately the equivalent of $3.00 per gallon for diesel on the Rio Dulce in Guatamala this past winter. Could have been a bit more but not much more. In Belize the price was higher and in Mexico at Isla Mujeres it was a good bit less. I am told that Mexico has the cheapest fuel prices in the western Caribbean region.

Venezuela diesel was about 7 cents US a gallon, and gas was 12 cents us as of January. Margarita island is higher, but they deliver it to the boat. Trinidad was under a dollar.

We just paid 3.84 US a gallon in Salinas PR
3.24 US in highbourn cay, bahamas

SW Caribbean

For diesel we paid about $2.50 per gallon on Providencia island and about $3.26 in Bocas del Toro, Panama. It's about $3.10 at the gas station here in Colon, but I don't know what they're charging at the yacht club.
