The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Again, for the third time so far this month an increase in fuel price is occurring this week, making fuel prices equal to those during the global economic crisis that hit the Costa Rica in 2012.
The adjustment amounts to 8¢ more a liter, 4¢ for plus and an additional 12¢ per liter on diesel.
Thus, the final price will be 760¢, 786¢, 689¢ respectively per liter.
According to data from the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (ARESEP), these new prices are similar and even greater than those that occurred during the global economic crisis, which are the highest in the past two years. In the case of super it is exactly the same price, while the plus and diesel exceed past amounts.
“Due to the global economic crisis, fuel prices increased significantly, now we will have the same price of the super we had last October 25, 2012,” spokeswoman Carolina Mora stressed.
Notably, 30% of the fuel prices are a single tax.
This adjustment is approved due to the variation in international prices and the exchange rate.
