Fuel Prices Lowered Again
The sixth reduction in gas prices so far this year was approved yesterday by the Public Services Regulatory Authority (ARESEP).
The price of one liter of regular gasoline will decrease from ¢501 ($0.97) to ¢485 ($0.94), while the one liter of super gas will drop from ¢528 ($1.02) to ¢513 ($0.99).
Additionally, ARESEP Wednesday approved a reduction in the price of diesel gas from ¢383 ($0.74) per liter to ¢364 ($0.70).
These reductions will go into effect as soon as they are published in the official government daily La Gaceta, likely toward the end of next week.
Meanwhile, drivers yesterday reaped the benefits of a price adjustment approved Sept. 8.
