The tax update corresponds to the inflation of the first and second quarters of 2021, which accumulated 25.3%. The same decree establishes that as of January 1, 2023, the price evolution of the second half of 2021 and all of 2022 will be transferred. If the rise is not postponed, something that has been happening since the middle of last year, it will impact the price of gasoline and diesel.
