The Department of Consumer Affairs (DACO) reported Thursday morning a drop of several cents in the price of gasoline, a cost not seen in several weeks.
According to the agency, the price of regular gasoline should range between 103.7 and 116.7, premium gasoline between 109.7 and 138.7, and diesel between 112.7 and 131.7.
These costs should be reflected in the gas stations that are refueled during the day of the day.
