No cuts in oil derivatives excise

The Ministry of Finance has approved the proposal of the Ministry of Mining and Energy to increase fuel prices by 12.48% on the average. An analysis of the impact that lower excise on oil derivatives would have on the republic budget and inflation, conducted by the Ministry of Finance, showed it would be impossible to reduce excise duties at this moment, because it would affect adversely budget revenues, while contributing just slightly to containing inflation.
