Scrap handing fuel prices at a whim, bus owners warns
Santo Domingo.- The country’s biggest bus owners union (Conatra) on Tues. demanded that the Industry and Commerce Ministry scrap its discretionary handling of fuel prices.
Conatra general manager Rafael Arias said the Government charges a RD$88.27 tax on each gallon of gasoline.
In a press conference accompanied by Conatra president Antonio Marte, Arias demanded that the Government explain to the country where the fuel sales revenue goes.
Conatra’s demand comes amid spiraling fuel prices since early February.
