Householders now have the option of purchasing Liquefied Petroleum Gas, or cooking gas in a more consumer-friendly cylinder. The company launched its new 25-pound-capacity cylinder. The cylinder is lighter and made of a rust-resistant material. Critically as well for consumers, the container holds more fuel, meaning even better value, according to Kiz Nathaniel, WIOC’s Special Projects Officer, speaking on the heels of the soft launch of the product on Friday, April 5 in St John’s.

The company, which is the sole distributor of cooking gas in Antigua and Barbuda, says the new product is initially available in three service stations; Friars Hill, outside the company’s headquarters, as well as the Spencer’s and Belle Vue locations. Roll-out is expected to continue on a phased basis across the entire network.
