QCOSTARICA – While the price of crude oil on international markets continues to drop, gasoline prices in Costa Rica keeps on going up.

Sometime before the end of this week, the price at pumps will increase ¢3 colones for a litre of super and regular and ¢2 colones for diesel, said Monday the Autoridad Reguladora de los Servicios Públicos (ARESEP) – regulator of public prices and services.

The increase reflects an adjustment proposed by the Refinadora Costarricense de Petróleo (RECOPE), that originally requested an increase of ¢9 colones in fuel prices.

The ARESEP did not grant RECOPE the full increase because the Intendencia de Energia (Energy Council of the ARESEP) did not recognize the ¢20 billion expenses in operating costs requested by the refinery.

The approved increase will go into effect the day following its publication in the official government newsletter, La Gaceta, which is expected to occur by this Friday (within five business days of approval).

Currently the price at the pumps is ¢676 for a litre of super, ¢639 for regular and ¢477 for diesel.
