The Public Services Regulatory Authority, Aresep, which is the public organization in charge of setting the price of public services, approved a reduction of ₡20 colones (about 3 U.S. cents) in gasoline prices .

According to the Costa Rican Oil Refinery, Recope, which is the public organization in charge of importing, distributing and calculating the price of fuels, the decreased price is over a slight reduction in the dollar exchange rate from 553 colones per $1 in March to 542 colones in April.

The new prices will be as follows:

  Super gasoline decreased to ₡740 colones per liter, about $1.35.

  Gasoline Plus 91 (regular) decreased to ₡710 colones per liter, about $1.30.

  Diesel decreased to ₡637 colones per liter, about $1.15.

It is expected that Aresep will publish the new fuel rates in the official government newspaper La Gaceta this week.
