Station owners demand a mechanism to update income independent of the price increase


They assure that due to the effect of the energy policy implemented by the Government, in the last two years they resigned a 40% profitability.

Last Wednesday, INDEC reported that inflation for 2022 closed at 94.8%, the highest in the country recorded in the last 32 years.

However -with the exception of Premium diesel-,

fuels increased below that record

: gasoline 67% and diesel 91%.

"In the last two years we resigned 40% of our profitability and the projection for 2023 continues to be just as negative," said CECHA's secretary, Pedro Llorvandi.

"The energy policy

of this Government is condemning more than 400 Service Stations

to their final closure

," he warned.

"We do not disagree with the authorities agreeing with the oil companies on a price path,

but we need a mechanism for updating income

independent of that decision," said Llorvandi.

The manager argued that

the boards "at least" should be related to inflation,

since operating costs move at that rate, "starting with salaries and continuing with spare parts and fees for outsourced professional services, such as engineers. , accountants and lawyers”, he listed.

In an effort to find solutions, the businessman stated that "if the Government continues in this position, that they give us a bonus according to our needs

because the parking lot can no longer continue resisting higher expenses with lower income."

Fair Prices

After the increase recently applied by Shell, and which will be followed shortly by the rest of the companies, the

agreement between the Ministry of Economy and the oil companies

contemplates a similar adjustment

in February and another of 3.8% in March.

However, the commitment could be extended until July, according to sources close to the portfolio led by Sergio Massa.
