Fuels have risen significantly, and prices have reached almost the same level as before the health crisis. Two weeks ago, drivers paid less than 5 lei for a liter of petrol or diesel, now the price is 5.2 – 5.3 lei / liter. Oil companies attribute the increases to the increase in excise duty and the evolution of the price of a barrel of oil, informs Digi 24.
Those who came to the pump on Monday, February 22, paid 5.15 lei for a liter of gasoline, and 5.24 for diesel. This while in November 2020 I paid 4.43 lei for a liter of gasoline, and 4.38 lei for diesel. Therefore, regardless of the fuel used, we now pay more than 70 bani more than we paid 3 months ago.
Economists warn that if the trend continues, it will trigger price increases in the chain.
“There is an increase in quotations for both petrol and diesel, an upward trend in petroleum products as a result of the economic recovery. It is also a reason for happiness for the state, because half are excise duties and taxes that go to the state budget, but on on the other hand, economically, it is not something to be happy about, the transport services are increasing, which is reflected in the increase of the costs of the transported goods “, says Razvan Nicolescu, former Minister of Energy.
