The vice minister of Internal Commerce, Ramón Pérez Fermín, informed this Friday that hydrocarbons would maintain their prices during the first quarter of April 22 to 28 this year, and the extraordinary subsidies to fuels amounted to 5 billion pesos.

“From the government of President Luis Abinader we have given a forceful response to the global price crisis, which can be evidenced in the stability of prices and the availability of fuel inventory throughout the national territory,” said the deputy minister.

He explained that this week, WTI trading closes per barrel ranged between US$79.16 as the minimum value and US$82.52 as the highest value quoted, representing a new upward trend following the production cut announcements by OPEC member countries.

“This week the extraordinary subsidy will be maintained to maintain the prices of all fuels without variation, for which RD$76.7 million will be allocated. With this week’s subsidy, the government has invested during the first quarter of 2023 more than RD$5 billion to keep prices frozen, in short, a great sacrifice to continue fighting high costs and contributes to the decrease of inflation and its effects on the price of the family basket in the country,” he added.
