Gas prices up in Nicaragua

December 24, 2008

Super and regular gas prices in Nicaragua have gone up $.07 per gallon. The price of diesel has also risen slightly, by $.0002 per gallon.

The new prices came after 13 weeks of a steady downturn in fuel costs, and followed the government´s Jan. 1 suspension of a transportation subsidy. The subsidy had been granted to truckers and taxi drivers since May 17 as a concession after the transport sector paralyzed the country for almost two weeks with a strike.

Following the hike, super and regular now cost $2.78 a gallon, and diesel is now at $2.57.
