Govt. assumes debt to freeze fuel prices again

Santo Domingo.– The Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Mipymes (MICM) reported that for the week of 1 to 7 January 2022, the prices of all fuels will remain unchanged, after the government assumes a debt of RD$191.6 million for keeping these prices frozen.

As of this Saturday, premium gasoline will continue to be sold at RD$270.10 a gallon and regular at RD$255.50 a gallon.

According to the report, optimum diesel will be sold at RD$219.10. At the same time, regular diesel will be sold at RD$201.10 and Liquefied Petroleum Gas at RD$141.10.

Likewise, natural gas is sold at (RD$28.97), avtur at (RD$180.68), kerosene at (RD$209.80), fuel oil at (RD$153.64), and fuel oil at 1% (RD$172.01).

The report indicates that the international market marks a clear panorama of uncertainty with upward trends, due to the progressive advance of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 which, despite its less harmful effects, has significantly pressured oil prices due to the decrease in expectations of a recovery in world fuel consumption.

All debts are always passed on to the people of the DR. Please don’t phrase it as if the Government has its own money (they get their money from the people)!!
