The Public Services Regulatory Authority (Aresep) has approved changes in the price of gasoline.

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 corporation in charge of importing, distributing, and selling fuels in Costa Rica, stated that the new rates were authorized based on expenses recorded in the gasoline markets when the products were purchased.

Gasoline super brand and diesel prices are decreasing somewhat per liter. On the other hand, the Plus 91 gasoline (known as regular) is increasing.

There will be no modifications to the price of the Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).

Authorities report an increase in gasoline regular costs despite a decrease in the dollar-colones exchange rate from ₡543 per $1 on June 1, 2023, to ₡523 per $1 on June 1, 2024.

The new prices will be as follows:

The gasoline "super" brand decreased to ₡737 colones per liter, about $1.36.

Plus 91 gasoline (known as regular) increased to ₡722 colon per liter, about $1.36.

Diesel decreased at ₡611 colones per liter, about $1.15.

Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), for use in heating appliances, cooking and vehicles, remains unchanged at ₡7,628 colones per 25-pound gas cylinder, about $14.39.

The new rates go into this week after being published in the official government newspaper La Gaceta.
