Euroradio

The government is discussing it and the decision will be made very soon.

The concern Belneftekhim has suggested increasing the fuel prices many times this year, Belorusy i Rynok notes. But the decision was put off. It could probably be explained by the recent hockey championship in Minsk.

The fuel prices increased by about 2% in Belarus on December 28, 2013.

The fuel prices may increase by at least 5% soon. However, the issue of increasing the excise tax is also being discussed now. If the decision is made, the fuel prices at filling stations will go up by about 10%.
