QCOSTARICA – President-elect Rodrigo Chaves said on Monday he is opposed to the current Congress firmly allowing a decrease of up to ¢100 in the price of fuel.

Congress recently approved a new substitute text to lower fuel prices, however, the current Ministry of Finance announced its refusal, taking into account the impact on state finances.

The President-elect emphasized that a gap of ¢250 billion colones will be generated for the State, for which he hopes that the initiative will not advance.
