Gas Prices Drop 15%
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.
