Last week’s official fuel price increase means that Nicaragua now has the highest price for a gallon of fuel in Central America.
The official price of a gallon of premium gasoline is now US$ 5.48 (or 13 cents more than second place Costa Rica who normally lead the way as the most expensive).
Regular gasoline is US$ 5.10 a gallon.
However, at US$4.68 a gallon, diesel is 10 cents cheaper here than the US$ 4.78 a gallon they charge in Costa Rica.
In CR, the fuel prices are state regulated and prices change only once per month.
