He found a ticket of what he paid in 2018 for diesel, compared it with the current price and surprised everyone
Horacio Esteban Repetto He is 59 years old, he is an agricultural engineer and currently presides over the Association of Agricultural Engineers of the province of Buenos Aires. Yesterday published a photograph of a ticket in social networks where it reflects the difference between what you spent in 2018 to load diesel and what you paid in the last few days for the same amount of fuel. The difference surprised his followers, who replied to the post.
In dialogue with THE NATION, explained: “I found that looking in a very old notebook, the 2018 invoice, and I had just loaded diesel. Every three or four days I charge and I just saw the bill. There is a liter of difference, but they were practically the same liters of diesel and the change in so few years shocked me,” he said.
In the post he made on Twitter, Repetto, who works advising agricultural producers in the Azul and Tandil area, said that For the same number of liters of diesel that he had loaded in 2018, he had paid $1,400. Instead, on July 7 of this year he had to pay $10,002.91. “It is nothing new for us that diesel has increased in these years,” he said about the problem of increasing fuels.
On May 9, 2018, he loaded up 47.70 liters of V-Power Nitro diesel for $29.35 a liter. Meanwhile, it comes from charging 46.9018 liters of Infinia diesel at $158.25. “Now I am in a sector where I am seeing a wind farm, crops, livestock, and I think that we are in a rich country and we are poor. This is of enormous sadness, ”she indicated.
“The first time you charge and go from 9,000 to $10,000 is something that does not go unnoticed for no person. This was the second time,” she claimed.
He said that the problems of the country’s economy “you are stuck” promptly “as an independent professional”. In social networks they indicated that since the first ticket “many things had happened” in the middle. “I am an advisor and I appraise agricultural claims and it hits me like everyone else”, pointed out.
“I have a very close example, because my younger sister is an Australian citizen, she has lived in Australia for more than 20 years, a country with fewer resources than Argentina and is rich, where there is not a single poor. There is no poverty. It particularly pains me terribly, on the other hand, I understand the youth who are looking outwards. My sister is an educational psychologist and her husband is a marine biologist. Look if they had stayed in this country, there they have a pass that you don’t have an idea with those professions. It is very sad. I live it as something very sad, “he said.
The activity of agricultural claims, he explained, begins in November and ends in May. In this case, the entire season is analyzed where there may be damage to crops, such as frost, high winds and hail.
