Abstract

This paper studies the pricing policy of gasoline in Colombia from when it was subsidized until recent years. It uses the economic theory of the public sector to outline the changes which occurred in the central government in terms of technical pricing. It also emphasizes the role played by the state petroleum company on the Colombian fiscal crisis in beginning of the century and it refers to the place of oil in the productive activity. Finally, this paper estimates the distributional characteristic of Feldstein (1972) in order to understand the effect of removing the gasoline subsidy.
