With the change, the price at the pumps will be, in effect the day following publication in La Gaceta (expected the middle of August):

  • Super: ¢690 from the current ¢659
  • Regular (plus 91): ¢664  from the current ¢638

Under the current system of regulating fuel prices, the Recope makes requests to the Aresep the second Friday of each month.

With respect to the exchange rate, the variation from the previous month to the requested date, the colon dropped from ¢590.15 per US dollar to ¢582.48, the numbers used by Recope, as explained in their statement provided on July 12.
