The avtur, used in aviation, will lower its price in the next seven days, while the costs of other fuels will remain stable in the Dominican Republic, the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and MSMEs (MICM) reported this Friday.
The Government leaves hydrocarbon prices frozen for the week of March 11 to 17, assuming a sum close to RD$304.3 million.
Premium gasoline remains in this way at RD$293.60 and regular at RD$274.50 per gallon, a freeze that also occurs in regular diesel, at RD$221.60 per gallon, and in the optimum, at RD$241.10.
The same occurs with fuel oil #6 (RD$192.11 per gallon) and fuel oil 1%S, which follows at RD$211.77, and with kerosene (RD$338.10 per gallon).
Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) remains at RD$147.60 per gallon and natural gas at RD$28.97 per cubic meter.
In this way, increases in regular diesel for RD$24.46, optimal for RD$25.87, premium gasoline for RD$14.05 and regular for RD$16.86 are avoided.
According to the Central Bank of the Dominican Republic, government subsidies help maintain stability and, above all, lower inflation.
