Gas Prices to Drop for Fifth Time This Year

October 2, 2009

Gas prices will decrease next week for the fifth time this year. Beginning next Thursday, Oct. 8, prices will fall ¢26 for Super, ¢24 for Plus and ¢22 for diesel.

Prices of gasoline are adjusted once a month and vary according to the price of petroleum products in international markets.

According to ARESEP, the Public Services Regulatory Authority, during the period of Aug. 27 to Sept. 10, there was an international decrease in the cost to produce hydrocarbons, which prompted the discounted rates.

The approved price reductions are:
