I've been sharing this blog with you for over 8 years & it has over 2,200 entries so of course some things might be out of date. If you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise. At least you'll have some basic info to get you started.

Better yet - do you have some time on your hands & looking for a volunteer project? Since this blog is a labor of love (that comes up often on the first page of google searches) & RARELY does anyone share a donation (even though MANY have said how much it's helped them), I could REALLY use help going through & updating things. Let me know if you can help!! People that speak Spanish are ESPECIALLY welcome since my VicLish can be somewhat limited at times!!
Has this blog helped you in any way? Given you more EASE or helped you find something? Has it brought you more exposure or business?
I welcome you to show YOUR Appreciation for what I share with you.

Gasoline - OVER $6 gallon in Costa Rica

Super gasoline to cost $6.04 per gallon in Costa Rica

Costa Rica's regulatory agency has approved an adjustment in the price of gasoline that will bring a gallon of super to $6.04. The increase is 30 colons a liter.

Plus gasoline, the lowest grade, is going up 30 colons to 748 colons for a per gallon cost of $5.75. Diesel was 636 colons a liter. The new price is 669 for a gallon price of $5.14

The Autoridad Reguladora de los Servicios Públicos said that the increases were based on the world price of petroleum and the exchange rate, which has not changed much. The agency used 500.13 colons to the U.S. dollar in its calculations.

There also were increases for liquid petroleum fuel, aviation gasoline and jet fuel.

The prices become effective when published in the La Gaceta official newspaper within three to five days, said the authority.

Petroleum is marketed by the state monopoly, the Refinadora Costarricense de Petróleo S.A.
