There is also a reduction in Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), also known as propane.

The publication in the La Gaceta is expected by mid-week in the coming week.

Fuel prices in Costa Rica are regulated. The prices of fuel are figured out by ARESEP, the government agency that oversees the price and availability of public services, using a formula based on the global cost of oil and the dollar exchange rate. Adjustments to fuel prices are made on a monthly basis.
