The National Council of Taxi Association (NCOTA) has joined the call by the energy minister for the Jamaica Gasoline Retailers’ Association to expose marketing companies unfairly adjusting their prices.
Just over a week ago, the retailers complained that one marketing company did not pass on the full $2.00 cut in gasoline prices announced Petrojam.
Instead, it reduced its price by only $1.50.
NCOTA president, Deon Chance said the action of the marketing company is bad for motorists who had been burdened by weeks of gas price increases.
Chance wants the marketing company to be exposed so that motorists can boycott its service stations.
He also said the government needs to step in to provide oversight to protect consumers.
However last week, Paulwell said he does not want the country to have to return to regulating the sale of petroleum products.
