The talk on everyone’s lips across Trinidad and Tobago today seems to be the sudden increase of the price of doubles- a local delicacy. Reports are that doubles vendors have decided to increase their product costs from $4 to $5, citing the increase in vehicular fuel prices following Monday’s budget presentation.
News Power Now spoke with the owner of Ali’s doubles in Barataria who said $5 is a good price but he feels this price should not be charged by all doubles vendors.
He went on to say that Trinbagonians would have no problem purchasing the delicacy overseas for $1USD.
