The president of the Jamaica Gasolene Retailers' Association (JGRA), Phillip Chong, says the association is now reviewing a letter from RUBiS, in response to dealers' concerns about contracts received from the marketing company.

Chong says the JGRA received the letter after a meeting on Friday with Energy Minister Dr Andrew Wheatley.

While declining to go into details about the contents of the letter, he says the association will meet today to review the document and provide a response.

At the same time, the JGRA president say the association’s seven-day ultimatum, issued last week Wednesday, remain in effect.

The JGRA had indicated that there could be disruptions in the petroleum sector if there is no resolution to its concerns.

Gasolene dealers and the JGRA members are opposed to the terms of the contracts being offered by RUBiS which they claim were draconian and unfair.

They claim that the terms place dealers in a disadvantageous position.
