Croatia caps motor fuel prices for 30 more days
Croatia's government said last week it decided to cap the retail prices of petrol and diesel for 30 more days to alleviate the impact of the recent jump of oil prices on international markets on the country's economic recovery and the standard of living.
This time, however, price limits will apply only to Eurosuper 95 petrol and Eurodiesel and not to higher brand motor fuels, according to a video file of the cabinet meeting published on the government's website.
In mid-October the government capped the maximum retail price of petrol at HRK 11.11 (EUR 1.5) per liter, while the maximum price of diesel was set at HRK 11.
