The V.I. Department of Licensing and Consumer Affairs (DLCA) is notifying the public of the latest rack rate prices issued by Gulf Oil at Lime Tree Bay Terminal effective June 29 – July 5, 2020.

Additionally, the Department of Licensing and Consumer Affairs (DLCA) conducted its territory-wide fuel price survey on Monday, June 29.
