March 17th, 2014 (InsideCostaRica.com) The Regulatory Authority for Public Services (ARESEP) expects fuel prices to increase during the first week of April, ARESEP spokeswoman, Carolina Mora told the digital newspaper, CRHoy.com last week.
“Super” gasoline is expected to increase by ¢29 per liter, regular gasoline by ¢21 per liter and diesel by ¢9 per liter.
The increases would bring from ¢711/liter to ¢740/liter the price of “Super” gasoline; regular gasoline would rise from ¢687 to ¢708 and diesel from ¢650 to ¢659.
While the increases must still be approved by public hearing, they will almost certainly be approved, as the increases are based on the exchange rate and the methodology is clearly defined.
