July 3rd, 2014 (InsideCostaRica.com) Regulator ARESEP has approved an increase in gasoline prices requested by the Costa Rican Oil Refinery (RECOPE), which will likely take affect this weekend.
Super gasoline will increase ¢29 per liter, climbing from ¢787 to ¢816. Regular gasoline will increase ¢27 per liter, increasing from ¢761 to ¢788.
The price hikes set a new record high price for gasoline in the country, which already has the highest fuel prices in the region.
