SANTO DOMINGO.- Reductions as high as RD$10.00 per gallon in the priceof gasoline, diesel and other fuels will benefit motorists starting Saturday, whereas the price of propane gas continues frozen in that period.
The Industry and Commerce Ministry said the new price per gallon of premium gasoline is RD$198.10, or RD$6 less, whereas regular gasoline will cost RD$187.90, or RD$6.10 less.
Rregular diesel will cost RD$182.30, for a RD$10 fall, and the premium diesel will cost RD$186.20, or RD$10 less per gallon.
Subsidized propane will continue frozen at RD$69.10 per gallon and the unsubsidized will also maintain its price of RD$90.86.
