ABOUT THE LIVING LIFE IN COSTA RICA BLOG

I (Vicki Skinner - aka "THE Sarong Goddess") created this blog in 2007 to share DETAILED Finds•Lists•Info•Events•Experiences to help bring more EASE to people living in or thinking of moving to Costa Rica since DETAILS are NOT easy to find here!
I’m NOT an expert (an "expert" 2 ME knows 101%-NOT me). I believe in sharin info•helping where I can! And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise. At least you have some basic info to get you started.
VOLUNTEER TO HELP:
Better yet - do you have some time on your hands & looking for a volunteer project? Since this blog is a labor of love (that comes up often on the first pages of google searches) & RARELY does anyone share a donation (even though MANY have said how much it's helped them), I could REALLY use help going through & updating things. Let me know if you can help!! People that speak Spanish are ESPECIALLY welcome since my VicLish can be somewhat limited at times!!

Gasoline - OVER $6 gallon in Costa Rica

Super gasoline to cost $6.04 per gallon in Costa Rica

Costa Rica's regulatory agency has approved an adjustment in the price of gasoline that will bring a gallon of super to $6.04. The increase is 30 colons a liter.

Plus gasoline, the lowest grade, is going up 30 colons to 748 colons for a per gallon cost of $5.75. Diesel was 636 colons a liter. The new price is 669 for a gallon price of $5.14

The Autoridad Reguladora de los Servicios Públicos said that the increases were based on the world price of petroleum and the exchange rate, which has not changed much. The agency used 500.13 colons to the U.S. dollar in its calculations.

There also were increases for liquid petroleum fuel, aviation gasoline and jet fuel.

The prices become effective when published in the La Gaceta official newspaper within three to five days, said the authority.

Petroleum is marketed by the state monopoly, the Refinadora Costarricense de Petróleo S.A.
