Gasoline prices should be coming down next month, not by much, but still a drop.


The Refinadora Costarricense de Petróleo (Recope) calculates that the price of litre of super gasoline should drop ¢5 colones, regular gasoline ¢1, however, diesel fuel will increase ¢2 colones.

Although the final decision rests with the Autoridad Reguladora de los Servicios Públicos (Aresept), Recope authorities consider that the international market conditions point to a decline.

If approved by the Aresep, the price of litre of super would drop to ¢737 from the ¢742 colones per litre, regular would drop to ¢701 from the current ¢702 and diesel would increase to ¢621 from the current ¢619.
