As it happened during the year, "premium" fuels are the least beneficiaries of a given revival. His office improved by 4% in October, but still They are 28% lower in the year-on-year comparison in the case of "superior" naphtha. The highest quality diesel is 6% lower than in 2017.
The total volume of gasoline issued in October 2018 is 4% less than in the same month of 2017. In diesel, the decrease is slightly higher than 2%.
The prices of "primary" fuels increased almost 75% during this year. This made their sales decline unusually. In the Executive Branch, they argue that higher octane gas prices should go through a reduction (10% were mentioned, but with another quotation from the dollar) as of December. For oil, oil companies say that these quantities are still lagging behind and that the increase would be almost a fact.

Gas oil averaged 32.54 in October for YPF, while "premium" fuel was shipped to 38.51 dollars. The "super" of the largest oil company in the country was $ 36.76, while the prize was sold at $ 43.47.
November price corrections were lower and changed. Axion scored and scored more than 5%, in line with what Shell later did. But YPF was cut with a 2.5% recomposition.

In the government and YPF we deny that these frictions exist.
November's concentration was lighter: the super hit 37.59 dollars, while the prize went up 54 cents to 44.01 dollars.
Despite two months to define, oil companies estimate that this year's fuel ship could be higher than last year. The December behavior will be unbalanced.
The exit of Oil, the oil company of Cristóbal López, Within the brands that make up the market, it also has effects. YPF's market share increased from 53.75% to 54.85%, according to Cecha data from the information provided by the Ministry of Energy. The Shell brand (now in the hands of the Brazilian Raizen) lost some market: from 20.93% to 20.54%. Axion grows from 12.25% to 13.91%.
