Costa Rican government approves fuel-price hikes
The Public Services Regulatory Authority (ARESEP) approved on Tuesday new fuel rates by applying automatic adjustments for January and February plus tax-based variations.
The measure increases per-liter prices by ₡724 ($1.40) for “super” gasoline, ₡706 ($1.37) for “plus” gasoline and ₡645 ($1.25) for diesel.
