The Consumer Affairs Commission (CAC) is expected to make an announcement by the end of the month on the outcome of discussions for the compensation of motorists affected by contaminated gas.

Chairman of the CAC, Kent Gammon reportedly told JIS News on Thursday that dialogue continues with stakeholders in the petroleum industry to arrive at a resolution.

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

The CAC met with the Jamaica Association of Petroleum Marketers, Petrojam Ethanol and other key stakeholders on December 13 to discuss compensation of motorists.
