While all other fuel prices will drop, regular and super will maintain their March 4 pricing

The drop in prices reflects the decrease in prices of fuels in international markets, from which Recope purchases and imports to Costa Rica, due to a reduction in demand for crude oil,  due to the spread of COVID-19 and the excess supply, where there are no longer systems for its storage.
