Perez Fermin explained that the international price of WTI, reference for our market, averaged US$104.40, for a net decrease last week of 3.9%, which is moderately encouraging news.
The Vice Minister also pointed out that the annual increase is still over 37.2%, mainly due to the war in Ukraine, which has been going on for more than four months, hitting the market not only for fuels but also for food, creating an unforeseen and harsh scenario for all the economies of the world.
With this extraordinary subsidy, the government once again assumes 100% of the increases avoiding increases in LPG by 5.14 pesos per gallon; in Premium Gasoline by more than 62 pesos; in Regular Gasoline by more than 70 pesos; in Regular Gasoil by almost 82 pesos and in Optimum Gasoil by nearly 87 pesos per gallon.
The average weekly exchange rate is RD$54.92 from the Central Bank’s daily publications.
