Oil production grew...

  • Energy Prices


    Oil product prices were liberalised in 1991. In 2015 the price of premium unleaded gasoline was US$1.28/l, showing a 16% decrease from 2014 levels. The price of diesel was US$1.16/l (-13% compared to 2014). The fall of prices is mainly linked to the devaluation of the Argentinian currency.
