Big increases in gasoline, diesel prices coming soon


March 4th, 2014 ( Get ready to pay more at the pump.


Already-approved increases of ¢26 per liter for “super” gasoline, ¢25 per liter for regular (“plus”) gasoline and a ¢19 per liter increase in the price of diesel are scheduled for this month, and only await publication in the official La Gaceta.


In addition, the Costa Rican Oil Refinery (RECOPE) has filed a separate request for an increase in its operating margin with regulators.


If approved, the result would be additional increases of ¢35 per liter for super gasoline, ¢23/liter for regular gasoline and ¢27/liter for diesel on top of the already-approved increases.
