The Vice Minister of Internal Commerce, Ramón Pérez Fermín, reported this Friday that the government of President Luis Abinader has decided to maintain the extraordinary subsidy for all fuels, for this week it will be RD$326.8 million, avoiding increases in regular diesel for RD$43.33 and diesel optimal for RD$44.96.
The vice minister recalled that the subsidies assumed by the government to counteract the global crisis in hydrocarbon prices amount to more than RD$34.6 billion to date, which he described as a historic measure to protect the economy.
The government of President Abinader remains firmly determined to continue safeguarding economic stability and once again freezes the prices of all fuels for domestic use, a great fiscal sacrifice so as not to affect consumers and at the same time continue contributing to the reduction of inflation.
The extraordinary amount that will be allocated for this week will be more than RD$326.8 million, with this we are avoiding, once again, increases in Regular Diesel for RD$43.33 and Optimal Diesel for RD$44.96.
