Macedonia: More expensive oil as of next year


Instead of the broadcasting fee, oil will become more expensive next year. The increase in the price of diesel fuels is annoying the citizens daily. It is said that the price increase of oil will entail a series of additional costs and will directly affect the already empty family purse. They are fiercely criticizing the current government and seeking to fulfill the promise given to citizens during the elections, and not to hit on them in such a way.

In parallel, the increase in excise duties will entail a series of increases in public transport, will increase the cost of taxi transport, agricultural crops, finished products and all branches related to the distribution. In a word, there is a new wave of price increases, i.e. a new price shock for the citizens, as greetings for the New Year.

As a reminder, SDSM, when it was in opposition, said that the price increase of energy resources became unbearable for the average Macedonian citizen. The then opposition reacted to the gas increase by 2.5 denars, and diesel fuel by 1.5 denars. Since then, nothing has changed, except that SDSM is not opposition but government in Macedonia.


As of the beginning of next year, the Government is increasing the excise duty by 3 denars, and together with VAT the prices will rise by 3.54 denars.

With the announced changes, in addition to borrowing, from January on, the Government will fill the financial hole in the budget directly from the pockets of the already poor population.
