Fuel Pricing Policies
"Pricing policy: Prices were deregulated in 1999 except LPG, for which maximum prices are set by location. When Tropigas, which controlled 60% of the LPG market at the time, asked for a 100% price increase amidst serious LPG shortages, the president in Sep 2008 declared an economic state of emergency for six months, authorizing Nicaraguan Institute of Energy to import and sell LPG. The state of emergency was repealed in Jan 2009.
Information: Instituto Nicaragüense de Energía (Nicaraguan Institute of Energy) posts the average prices of three deregulated products—gasoline, diesel, and kerosene—surveyed at about 75 filling stations in Managua every week, and provides details on the three highest-priced and three lowest-priced filling stations as money-saving tips."
