Although it is usually YPF that is on the cutting edge, this time - in tune with the new government that values private initiative - it was Shell that was the first to increase the prices of its fuels, two days after the assumption of Javier Milei to the Presidency.
The Anglo-Dutch oil company raised its prices by about 15% and super gasoline in the City of Buenos Aires is now one step away from $400.
The new signs mark that the most popular fuel sells for $398, while premium goes up to $485. Diesel, meanwhile, sells for $544.
The last increase in fuel prices had taken place on November 25 and had been led by YPF and Axion. The increase had been 10%.
