The main hypothesis of this paper is that fixed exchange rate regimes might be an ill-suited choice for fuel exporting countries. While exchange rate regime choices motivations might not be the same than of the ones of non-fuel exporters, also the consequences are not similar. Fuel exporters announce an exchange rate regime that is not congruent with the external shocks to which these countries are subjected, and their de facto policies are affected by institutional factors such as central bank independence and democracy levels. Moreover, these countries are not able to reap the fruits of fixing their exchange rate regimes in terms of inflation performance.
