CHARLOTTE AMALIE – For the second week in a row, nine service stations surveyed on St. Thomas are tied for having the lowest price of gasoline on the capital island, according to the latest survey of gas stations by the Department of Licensing and Consumer Affairs.

The prices on St. Croix also remained basically the same, DLCA said.

The nine stations with prices of $2.999 per gallon are: 1st Stop, Giant Gas, Home Town, One Stop (Sugar Estate), Race Track, Total Frenchtown, Total Gottlieb, Total On The Run and Total Rodriguez.

Tutu Texaco was in second place with a price of $3.079 per gallon and Texaco Airport was in third place offering gas for $3.089 per gallon as of the October 15 survey completed by DLCA.

The cheapest price for diesel gasoline for your car on St. Thomas was 1st Stop in Estate Thomas at $3.519 per gallon; for your boat, the best price for diesel can be had at Saga Haven at $3.590.

In all, DLCA surveyed 23 gas stations on St. Thomas – the businesses with the lowest prices reflect unleaded self-service rates. Six stations offer full service including: Boynes Trucking, Petrus Gas, Smith Bay Texaco, Texaco Frenchtown, Texaco Polyberg and Total Gottlieb.

The Virgin Islands Free Press will publish the weekly findings of the DLCA gas survey as a consumer service to its readers.
