Guatemala’s oil imports bill increased by 17 percent in the first half of the year
Guatemala paid $190 million more on oil imports in the first six months of this year compared with the same period of 2009. The imports included gasoline, diesel, asphalt and bunker fuel.
In the first half of last year, oil imports cost $1.12 billion.
However, consumption of fuel in the first half of this kear dropped by 2009, possibly because of difficulties in the economy.
