The Public Services Regulatory Authority (Aresep) has authorized a drop in fuel prices.

Aresep is the public organization in charge of setting the price of public services requested by the Costa Rica Oil Company (Recope).

Recope, the state-owned company in charge of importing, distributing, and selling fuels in Costa Rica, declared that the new rates were cut based on the fall in costs recorded in the gasoline markets when the products were purchased between May and June 2024.

Gasoline super brand,  Plus 91 gasoline (known as regular) and diesel prices are decreasing somewhat per liter.

Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) will also see a price cut.

The new prices will be as follows:

The gasoline "super" brand decreased from ₡737 to ₡734 colones per liter. The new rate is around $1.37.

Plus 91 gasoline (known as regular) decreased from ₡722  to ₡706 colones per liter. It costs approximately $1.32.

Diesel decreased from ₡611 to  ₡600 colones per liter. The revised price is around $1.12.

Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), for use in heating appliances, cooking and vehicles, decreased from ₡7,258 to  ₡7,199 colones per 25-pound gas cylinder. The updated price is about $13.47.

The new prices become effective today after being published in the official government publication La Gaceta.
