If you were looking forward to saving a few colones on the price of gasoline, hold on. The  Autoridad Reguladora de los Servicios Públicos (Aresep) announced Wednesday the postponed of the gas price drop that was expected to take effect on Saturday, due to threats of a strike by gasoline station owners

The reduction would have seen the price of gasoline drop ¢6 colones per litre on super gasoline and diesel fuel and ¢5 for regular gasoline.

Gasoline station owners are upset with the ARESEP for not approving their request for an increase to improve their margins on sales, in fact the regulatory body not no did not approve the hike, but rather a drop.
