Government allocates more than 260 million pesos for fuel subsidies

The Deputy Minister of Domestic Trade, Ramón Pérez Fermín, informed this Friday that the Government continues with its efforts through the extraordinary subsidy, to keep fuel prices stable, so that this week gasoline, diesel and LPG remain unchanged.

He explained that through the extraordinary subsidy provided by the Government of President Luis Abinader, the impact of this international increase is being mitigated on citizens, absorbing a total of DR 263.4 million this week.

“We know that times can be challenging and every peso counts in the economy of our households. International fuel prices have maintained some volatility that directly impacts our market, with WTI rising to DR 84.15 and an accumulated rise of 18.7%, from June to today the Government has decided to maintain the extraordinary subsidies to impact as little as possible to the citizenry,” said the Vice Minister.
