just my 2 cents...
http://www.dominicantoday.com/app/article.aspx?id=16584Do you think there is any coincidence that NYMEX Crude closed at $71.95 today?
This is down from a July High of $80.05/BBL.
I do not know how long this will last???
It is being done even in the States... a conversion kit to let a diesel engine powered vehicle run on recycled deep frying oil can be found in the States for as low as U$D 800.oo (as seen on TV ). Then, one would need some filtering system (available) and tanks and a pump... and last but not least some good connections to some Dominican restaurants or o good dozen of Dominican households (they love frying about everything) to get the oil from.Shows how dependent the DR is to imported oil.
Do I hear alternate sources of energy, anyone.
All fuel prices dropAs of today, the gallon of premium gasoline will be sold for RD$131.50, and regular for RD$118.20, both were raised RD$3.20 per gallon.
Diesel was raised by RD$2.80 placing its price at RD$96.10.
LPG?s price was raised by RD$1.08, thus making the price of subsidized LPG RD$44.37 and that of not subsidized RD$64.24.
