With the opposition from the private sector, the government insists on delaying for five years the fulfillment of the agreement which establishes a reduction in the level of sulfur contained in diesel.
April 15, 2015 is the deadline given by the Council of Ministers of Economy and Foreign Trade of Central America (Comieco) to reduce the concentration of sulfur in diesel. However, the government argues that it does not yet have the necessary equipment "... to control product quality and reassure consumers that they are purchasing low sulfur diesel."
Complaints have been made about loss of competitiveness due to fuel costs being the highest in the region.
A study by the National Chamber of Agriculture and AgroIndustry (CNAA) states that in June the price of a gallon of diesel cost, on average, $4.71 in Costa Rica, $3.76 in Panama, $4.02 in Guatemala , $4.44 in Nicaragua , $4.15 in El Salvador , and $4.20 in Honduras.
