The vice minister of Internal Commerce, Ramón Pérez Fermín, informed this Friday that the government of President Luis Abinader has arranged to maintain the special subsidy to all fuels for this week it will be RD$326.8 million, avoiding hikes in regular diesel for RD$43.33 and optimum diesel for RD$44.96.
The vice minister recalled that the subsidies assumed by the government to counteract the global crisis of hydrocarbon prices amount to more than RD$34.6 billion to date, which he described as a historic measure to safeguard the economy.
The government of President Abinader remains firmly determined to continue safeguarding economic stability. Accordingly, it is once again freezing the prices of all fuels for domestic use, a tremendous fiscal sacrifice so as not to affect consumers and, at the same time, continue contributing to the decrease in inflation.
The extraordinary amount to be allocated for this week will be more than RD$326.8 million, thus avoiding, once again, increases of RD$43.33 in Regular Gasoil and RD$44.96 in Optimum Gasoil.
