This Government increased the gas excise tax three times but now offers fuzzy math when it needs to help our citizens, said VMRO-DPMNE Vice President Gordaba Dimitrieska – Kocoska.

The increase in prices began to intensify in 2021 but the SDSM – DUI Government remained irresponsible and while all others were filling up their strategic reserves with wheat, flour, cooking oil and energy, they were spending on luxury items. The “goods and services” item in the budget grew by 47 percent in the end of 2021 compared to 2020, by 76 million EUR. This is unproductive spending. That is why we ask that the fuel excise tax is cut in half – it will benefit all of us, primarily the consumers, Dimitrieska said.
