By: John N TelesfordGrenada celebrates forty (41) years of independence in 2015. Congratulations! But there seems to be another reason to celebrate (albeit temporary), and that is, the crash of oil and gas prices. As we are aware, our chronic dependence on the importation of oil and gas renders the local prices for products such as gasoline very volatile or unstable. These prices have remained high for the last few years. But in a dramatic turn of ‘international events’, prices plummeted, and Grenada was provided with what appears to be a surprising and welcome independence celebration gift. However, this gift will be short-lived, and in the words of PS Antoine we should “…enjoy it while it last” (WEE FM Radio News Interview, 20-01-2015).
