No more regular gas on the market, fishermen threaten protests

Fish­er­men are plan­ning to protest out­side the Of­fice of the Prime Min­is­ter next week be­cause reg­u­lar gas is no longer avail­able in the coun­try.

Vice pres­i­dent of the Clax­ton Bay Fish­ing As­so­ci­a­tion Bhadase Sook­nanan warned that with­out reg­u­lar gas, the fu­el used in the out­board en­gines of their boats, the lo­cal fish­ing in­dus­try will be oblit­er­at­ed. Sook­nanan, who owns two boats and em­ploys five peo­ple, said he used to spend $200 on gas for one fish­ing trip but that cost will in­crease to $500.
