Gas Prices Drop 15%

October 19, 2007

As of Oct. 13, drivers in Costa Rica are paying 15% less for their gasoline, thanks to a tariff reduction approved last week by the Public Services Regulatory Authority (ARESEP).

However, users of diesel fuel are paying 7% more.

The price of one liter of super gasoline dropped from $1.20 to $1.04, while regular gas dropped from $1.13 to $1.01. One liter of diesel fuel now costs $0.88, up from $0.82.
