As of Wednesday, May 25, the international price of WTI averaged US$111.17, for a slight increase of 0.5% in relation to the average of the previous week, which amounted to US$110.56, with WTI reflecting an accumulated increase of 43.0%.
“Given the complex panorama, the government of President Luis Abinader remains determined to protect the pockets of Dominicans, giving continuity to subsidies for all fuels and assuming 100% of the increases,” Pérez explained.
He stressed that this action prevents the Dominican from paying increases ranging from 6.50 per gallon in the case of LPG, 71 pesos per gallon if we talk about Premium Gasoline; almost 80 pesos for Regular Gasoline and almost 74 pesos per gallon for Regular and Optimal Gasoil.
