Central America: Fuel Prices up to January 14

Price per gallon of regular gasoline: Costa Rica $4.07, Nicaragua $3.52, Honduras $3.45, El Salvador $3.04, Guatemala $3.02 and Panama $2.83

Monday, January 13, 2020

From the Ministry of Economy of El Salvador's statement:

The current reference prices for gasoline and diesel present generalized increases, due to the recent geopolitical conflicts between the United States and Iran during the first weeks of January 2020, which is why the international prices of oil and derivatives increased by an average of 4%.

This situation also generated uncertainty among investors and producers due to the latent threat to world supplies, since the Arab country could block the sea route of the Strait of Hormuz, which serves as an outlet for oil ships in the open sea and allows the region's oil to be brought to markets in Asia, Europe and North America, stopping approximately 30% of world production.
