From the VATICAN ENQUIRER – In an effort to reduce gasoline prices in Costa Rica, a country with the highest gasoline prices in Central America, the government has proposed a decree that would legally be acceptable for one liter to be really be 900 milliliters.

1l-900mlUnder the proposal when applied to gasoline prices, a customer buying a liter of gasoline would actually get 900 milliliters  pumped into their tank.

The change would allow the government to reduce the price of a liter of gasoline. “Yes, some people will figure it out, but the people are idiots, they don’t pay attention to little details, like how much gasoline they are actually getting,” said a state refinery official that spoke to the Enquirer on the basis of anonymity.

What this means is that the price of the pump will take a 10% or more drop, “depending on how calculate things,” according to the official.

The controversial proposal is getting a lot of attention from private sector, since it is not only for gasoline, but can be used in measurements of milk , for example.

An official at the country’s consumer advocacy group said they have no objection as long as the labeling is correct. According to the official, there is no problem in labeling a carton of milk “1L” as long as somewhere on the package the consumer is told that the content are really 900ml.
