Monday, June 17, 2019

From the Ministry of Economy of El Salvador statement:

The reference prices for gasoline and diesel are experiencing important reductions in their prices again, because of the good production moment that the U.S. refineries are having. In the last fortnight's reports, the IEA reported that gasoline increased its reserves by 3.97 million barrels; likewise, diesel showed a 3.57-million-barrel growth. These data have allowed the expectation of supply to be encouraging to cover existing demand, allowing international prices to fall.

With the coming of June, the countries belonging to OPEC led by Saudi Arabia, along with those not belonging to the organization led by Russia, are against time to extend or not their production reduction pact, which is currently 1.2 million barrels per day and expires on June 30. This is because of several geopolitical factors in the Middle East, such as the restriction on exports to Iran since the beginning of the year, which has not allowed a date to be set for such a meeting. This generates uncertainty in international markets, allowing prices to have a downward trend for the current fortnight.

Central America: Fuel Prices up to May 20

May 2019

Price per gallon of regular gasoline: Costa Rica $4.26, Nicaragua $3.89, Honduras $3.72, El Salvador $3.42, Guatemala $3.38 and Panama $3.29.

From the Ministry of Economy of El Salvador statement:

The current reference prices reflect a downward trend, because during the first weeks of May, reserves of gasoline and distillates show minimal reductions, this has allowed prices to be more stable compared to the previous month, since the first half of May gasoline reported a 790,000-barrel decrease, while in April for the first half reported a 10.6-million-barrel reduction. Regarding diesel distillates, during the first fortnight of May a 1.4-million-barrel decrease was reported, while for the first fortnight of April it was 2.5 million barrels, a less marked difference, which affects the price of low-sulfur diesel for the next fortnight.

From the Ministry of Economy of El Salvador statement:

The increases in gasoline prices for the current fortnight are largely because of the prolonged fall in gasoline reserves, which add up to 7 consecutive weeks, according to reports provided by the IEA, detailing a reduction of 21.4 million barrels. This decline is equivalent to the one suffered between February and April 2017, which in 10 consecutive weeks reduced 22.9 million barrels, which reflects the marked difference in the increase in prices of regular and higher gasoline.
