    Initiative promotes referendum to open Recope monopoly

    A group of citizens promotes an initiative to establish the opening of the fuel market and the elimination of the monopoly of the Costa Rican Petroleum Refinery (Recope), without closing the state company.

    The proposal, promoted by Ernesto Alfaro Conde and “other citizens”, aims to end the monopoly of the fuel market and allow citizens to have the option of “choosing products and services within the largest assortment and at the lowest prices”.

    “Recope has been alone since its creation and has a captive market, in addition, it has a pattern that does not demand much of it. It is time for Costa Rica to strengthen itself in this area to stop depending on a single company for the purchase, sale and distribution of hydrocarbons,” the text argues.
