Fuel prices, once again, increase in Uruguay according to the mechanism of the government of Luis Lacalle Pou called “import parity price”, a hypothetical mathematical exercise that simulates what prices would be like if there were open competition and not a state monopoly like Ancap’s.
As of today, super 95 gasoline will rise by $1.5 per liter, which will cost $80.88. This is almost equivalent to two US dollars, while in neighboring countries like Argentina, for example, it is sold for around US$0.986, and in Brazil for around US$1,526.
For its part, diesel 50S (diesel) rises $3, so the liter will be sold at stations for $64.99.
The price of supergas remains frozen until September for the entire population: a kilo remains at $63.35, that is, a refill for the 13-kilo bottle has a value of $823.55.
The depositories of social plans of the Ministry of Social Development (Mides) will continue to pay half price.
