December 5th, 2014 ( Significant price reductions for gasoline and diesel fuels are effective as of today, after a November request by the Costa Rican Oil Refinery (RECOPE) was approved by regulator ARESEP and published in the official La Gaceta on Thursday.


Super gasoline will fall ¢68/liter, from ¢757 to ¢689; Regular will fall ¢65/liter from ¢720 to ¢655, while diesel will fall ¢29/liter from ¢636 to ¢607.


RECOPE said in its November request that the price reductions are thanks to falling international prices.

    So high test and regular are going to be the same price? Who thought that up? Still way to expensive here.

      Thank you for point this out, Gary. This is actually our (Inside Costa Rica’s) mistake. Regular will fall to 655/liter. We will update the story shortly and add it to our corrections log ( // ) – we would send you a coffee mug or something if we could afford one :) – Tim Williams, Editor.

        That’s okay, just have a coffee toast in my name.
