    Gas costs US$4.16 a gallon in Cuba

    The price of gasoline in Cuba remains at the equivalent of US$4.16 a
    gallon, a little less than half the monthly salary of the average Cuban.

    The government had decreed a price increase following Hurricane Ike last
    year on grounds that prices were going up worldwide.
