The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Three major adjustments in fuel, bus fares and electricity from the Services Regulatory Authority (Aresep) will take effect in May.
This was confirmed by a spokeswoman for the regulator, Carolina Mora, adding that there are increases and reductions.
On the subject of fuel, there will be a public consultation on May 5. An increase in a liter of super gasoline of ¢17 and an increase in Plus gas of ¢29 per liter is expected while diesel will decrease ¢1.
These adjustments are due to the behavior of the international market and the exchange rate of the dollar.
If approved, these prices will take effect in mid-May, so super gasoline will have a final price of ¢773, ¢752 for Plus, while the diesel will drop to ¢674.
Moreover, the resolution of an increase in national bus routes is expected, the initial proposal is 0.5% to ¢500 because of operating costs that were recorded between July and December last year.
The country will have a reduction in water rates after the review by ARESEP from the Costa Rican Institute of Aqueducts and Sewers (AyA), where it was determined that the entity has the resources to cope with all expenses, so that rates will be returned to ¢600 for 3,000 cubic meters of consumption.
