The 11.5% increase in fuels arranged at the national level is already applied in Tucumán. Starting today, the boards of the state oil company YPF display the new values, like the rest of the vending machines.
These are the new prices: gasoline super $114.60 (before $104.70); the Infinia $139.30 ($124.90); Infinia Diesel $137.50 ($121.70) and the Ultra $109.70 ($98.80).
Last night it was announced that from zero hours on Monday, fuels were going to raise the price of their basic fuels by 9.5% on average and the price of premium category fuels by 11.5% on average.
However, no increase applies to CNG, which is sold at $57.99 per cubic meter (in Tucumán)
According to what was reported by the state company, this adjustment responds to the evolution of the main variables that make up the retail price, especially the increase in international oil costs and demand levels higher than the pre-pandemic, which they require imports to complement the local supply.
In this sense, the firm pointed out that oil has suffered significant increases in recent weeks, reaching record levels (50% above the values at the beginning of February 2022).
In addition, he noted that the international price of fuels with which the local supply is complemented increased even above crude oil.
For this reason, YPF announced that it will continue to monitor the evolution of the variables that affect price formation, “taking into account the particularities of the macroeconomic context of the country and the international reality.”
The last increase announced by the company had been 9% and came into force at the beginning of last February, also in a context of sustained increase in global energy costs.
In March 2021, YPF had reported that during that year a staggered adjustment of 15% would be applied over three months to finance investments. The first increase of 7% average was applied on March 16 and then there was a second increase of 6% in April. The increases were differentiated: higher in the city of Buenos Aires and lower in the interior.
