If you didn’t fill the tank yesterday, for at one minute past midnight this morning the price of fuel increased at the pumps.

A litre of gasoline now costs ¢43 colones per litre more, bringing the price at pumps to ¢718; regular increased ¢35 colones for a final price of ¢678; and diesel went up ¢8 colones.

What this hike means an increase of ¢1.575 colones to fill a 45 litre gasoline tank with regular, bringing the total cost to fill it ¢30.510 colones (US$60 dollars).

Natural gas, kerosene and jet fuel prices also increased today.

And while you get used to the new prices, keep in mind that the Autoridad Reguladora de los Servicios Públicos (ARESEP) – regulator of public prices – is processing another increase that will further push up fuel prices.
