SANTO DOMINGO.- The National Association of Gasoline Retailers (Anadegas), asked President Luis Abinader Corona on Monday to come to the aid of that sector that, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, sales have been reduced by more than 30 percent. hundred.
Juan Matos, president of Anadegas, said that due to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, it deserves that the authorities make indexation in the marketing margins of fuels to prevent the stations from going bankrupt.
“The drop in sales aggravates the financial and operational situation of fuel retailers, so we ask the Government to help this sector and prevent us from going to collapse,” said the president of Anadegas.
He considered that President Luis Abinader must authorize the Minister of Industry and Commerce, Víctor -lto- Bisonó, to implement in all its parts the study carried out more than a year ago by the firm Consulting Chanoil LTD, which yielded results of the situation of the Fuel market nationwide.
He warns that if fuel retailers do not receive compensation from the government so they can tackle the difficult situation, “without a doubt we are going to disappear.”
“Anadegas asks President Luis Abinader to come to the aid of Fuel retailers, who have had millions in losses, and today we are in ruin due to the effects of the pandemic,” Matos noted.
The president of Anadegas declared that sales have fallen by 30 percent, and due to the curfew many stations have had to close, while dozens are on the way to bankruptcy.
