Consumer Affairs promises positive outcome next year for drivers affected by 'bad gas'

The Consumer Affairs Commission (CAC) is promising a positive outcome early next year following compensation negotiations on behalf of motorists affected by contaminated gas last year.

Yesterday, the CAC met with the Jamaica Association of Petroleum Marketers and Petrojam Ethanol about the compensation matters.

CAC chief executive officer Dolsie Allen says since November 2015, the Commission has been pressing for compensation for consumers.

She says while the negotiations are ongoing, the public will be informed of positive conclusions in the New Year.

Last year, several motorists had complained about engine problems after receiving bad gas at petrol stations islandwide.

However, a special team that probed the bad gas saga could not identify who should be held responsible.
