Gas prices to drop back down

October 2, 2009

Costa Rica´s gas prices will decrease next week after going up a month ago. Beginning next Thursday, Oct. 8, prices will fall ¢ 26 for super, ¢ 24 regular and ¢ 22 for diesel.

Despite the up and down, this will be the fifth time this year gas prices are reduced.

Prices of gasoline are adjusted once a month and vary according to the price of petroleum products in international markets. According to the Public Services Regulatory Authority (ARESEP), the period of Aug. 27 to Sept. 10 saw a decrease in the international costs to produce hydrocarbons, which prompted the discounted rates.

The approved price reductions are:
