Fuel prices have risen 70 percent over the past years, the VMRO-DPMNE party said in a statement.

It pointed out to the fact that diesel fuel was sold for 46 denars a liter in April 2020, and 56 denars in April 2021, but now costs 75 denars. That amounts to an increase of 63 percent. Gas spiked from 50 denars a liter to 69 and now to 84.5 denars – almost 70 percent up in one year.

This hits our citizens, transportation businesses, mining, construction, all of our economy, VMRO-DPMNE said.
