Petroperú reported this Friday that the prices of diesel offered at its supply plants nationwide respect current regulations, adapting to the provisions of the Ministry of Energy and Mines (MINEM) regarding the Fuel Price Stabilization Fund (FEPC).
In that sense, they specify that the FEPC managed to stop diesel from skyrocketing in the Peruvian market, since it currently only accumulates an increase of 34%. This figure is much lower than the 77% registered internationally (see table).
Petroperú pointed out that the increases in the list price for diesel are due to increases in the price band of the products subject to the FEPC.
“It should be noted that Petroperú has no influence on the setting of fuel prices towards the final consumer, since the prices are free and are set by the service stations,” concluded the state company.
