Fuel Prices Increase in Panama




Panama, Feb 8 (Prensa Latina) The combustibles most used by the Panamanian population - gasoline, diesel and propane went up in price again Friday, as per the government's Hydrocarbon General Office that periodically revises prices, but "does not mandate" them for distributors.

The previous readjustment was made before Carnival on February 1, when gasoline price was reduced 19 cents allowing more than 40,000 cars to make trips from the capital to the interior of the country.

However today Shell Oil communicated a problem with the arrival of a tanker, and instead of lowering, there is now a sudden artificial shortage and prices went up more than expected.
