Price per gallon of regular gasoline: Costa Rica $3.51, Nicaragua $3.51, Honduras $3.31, El Salvador $2.04, Guatemala $2.96 and Panama $2.79.

Monday, March 11, 2019

From the Ministry of Economy of El Salvador report:

The upward trend in fuel prices for the current fortnight is because of reduced reserves of gasoline and distillates such as diesel reported by the IEA. In the last week the decrease in gasoline was 4.2 million barrels, the largest decline recorded in 2019. Also, distillates for heating (Diesel) also recorded a significant reduction of 2.3 million barrels in the week, thus recording its seventh consecutive decline in inventories in 2019.

In addition to the above, there is also the uncertainty that is still maintained by the next meeting of the countries belonging and not belonging to OPEC, who will meet in Vienna, capital of Austria, in April to verify the compliance and continuity of the production cut of 1.2 million barrels of oil per day. This cut has affected the increase in international prices and, according to experts, could be extended until June of this year, generating high expectations and instability in the oil prices and its derivatives.
