Precios de los Combustibles e Inflación


  • Hernán Rincón



El objetivo del documento es describir el proceso de formación de los precios de los combustibles en Colombia y cuantificar el impacto inflacionario de un choque a sus precios, con el fin de que sirva de marco de referencia para los pronósticos de inflación y las decisiones de política monetaria. Se estima que un choque del 10% a los precios de la gasolina y del ACPM aumenta la inflación del índice de precios al consumidor en 1,31%.
