Good Morning Press ….
I am Stewart Gill, General Manager of Rubis Bahamas Limited.
Rubis is a French based publicly traded fuels company. Rubis has operations across Europe, Africa and the Caribbean. The business in Europe consists of fuel terminalling operations and LPG distribution, in Africa LPG distribution and in the Caribbean, the distribution of refined fuels, lubricants and LPG. Rubis acquired Chevron’s (formerly Texaco) fuel businesses in the Bahamas, Turks & Caicos and the Cayman Islands on April 30, 2012 to grow its presence in the Caribbean to 17 countries.
We come with good news today. All indicators suggest that The Bahamas is on its way to full recovery from what was a very grim economic climate. We survived the worst economic crisis since the great depression. These matters were compounded by a steady rise in the price of oil, thereby increasing the cost of petrol at the pumps.
Certainly, high gas prices affected us all. Our everyday lives depend on transportation – we need it whether to get to work or to get to yet another interview in search of work. We need it in some form, in order to get our kids to school, a loved one to a clinic, and for business and recreation whether by air, land or sea.
Texaco Bahamas, in particular our stations in New Providence, is happy to therefore, announce that as of today, for a limited time, the price of gas will cost less than $5.00 per gallon. For $4.90, you can now go further for less, and in many cases you can evade this sweltering heat by running your air conditioning in your car with less worries.
Texaco has seventeen participating locations which adequately covers the major communities of New Providence. These include, Carmichael Road, Wulff Road, Robinson Road, Porky’s, East and Soldier Road, Faith Ave., East West, West Bay, East Bay and Armstrong, Mackey and Madeira, Harbor View, Prince Charles, Thompson Blvd, Joe Farrington, Nu-Way, Olde Towne Marina Station and Shirley Street Service Stations.
We invite you to take advantage of this welcomed relief and fill up on our premium quality fuels while this offer lasts. Not only are our prices the best among our competitors today but we wish to remind the Bahamian motorist that our fuels are among the best, globally.
Thank you, I am now open for questions …..
