During the Zaevism government, fuel prices rose sharply due to the excise duties and taxes they introduced. A year and a half a liter of diesel fuel cost 46 denars, and today a liter of diesel exceeds 75 denars with a tendency to grow. Additionally, the price of a liter of gasoline was 50 denars, and now the price has exceeded 84 denars. This price increase is from 65 to 70%, VMRO-DPMNE said in a press release on Tuesday.

The party added that practically, with this increase in fuel prices, the budget of the citizens is affected directly, but also the economy. Fuel prices, which are crucial for the standard, are rising, and the government administered by Kovacevski ignores it.

That is why VMRO-DPMNE gives a concrete proposal for protection of the standard of the citizens and direct assistance to the economy. With the prposed law, we will request a reduction of excise duties on motor vehicle fuels by 50%. This measure will directly affect the reduction of the price of fuels, gasoline will be immediately reduced by 13 denars, and diesel by 9.5 denars. This does not only mean saving families, this also saves transportation in the economy and it can lower the prices of final products, said VMRO-DPMNE.

We expect the government of SDSM and DUI to accept this proposal ahead of the coming crisis. These difficult times require decisive steps, and not pointless “extraordinary” video addresses, said VMRO-DPMNE.
