The cheapest liter of naphtha is obtained in La Boca and Parque Patricios and the most expensive in Pompeii and Villa Soldati. This is the result of a survey carried out by the Fecoba Pyme Ciudad Productiva (CIPBA) Research Center, which is the Federation of Trade and Industry of Buenos Aires. The work was done during the last week of November and took out the average value of the super in each neighborhood.
At an individual level, CIPBA found the most expensive gasoline in the Petrobras Park of Chacabuco and the cheapest in the Axion of Eva Perón in 4300, in the Park Avellaneda.

By brand, the lowest price of super naphtha in October was that of the state YPF (36.76 pesos). Then Axion and Petrobras (in the hands of Trafigura / Puma) were located, while the most expensive was offered by South PDV (40.99 pesos), the oil company owned by Venezuelan state oil company PDVSA, which is undergoing a serious financial crisis in the country. Shell and Oil are also among the most expensive.

On the other hand, Villa Soldati and La Boca are the neighborhoods where less naphtha is sold. And the service station that supplies the least amount of naphtha is the PDV Sur Honorio Pueyrredón, in Villa Crespo.
In the city there are 184 service stations in 43 neighborhoods. This means that there are 5 neighborhoods that have no fuel dispatch.
YPF has the largest network of service stations in the city, with 75 branches and presence in 36 neighborhoods. Second, Shell is located, with 52 stations in 31 neighborhoods.

In terms of volume despatched, the ranking is led by YPF (48.6% of the total), Shell (27%) and Axion (19%).
According to data from the Center, YPF is the only company that maintains the price in each of its stations and, at the same time, offers the lowest price in the market.
