The Tunisian Ministry of Energy and Mines and the Ministry of Trade and Export Development made a joint written statement regarding the increase in petroleum products.
In the statement, it was stated that due to the contraction in supply in the global energy market and the increase in the supply cost of petroleum products since the beginning of the year, the price increase in petroleum products was made.
In the statement, it was stated that the price increase will be effective from Thursday, November 24, and it was announced that gasoline increased by 0.125 Tunisian dinars to 2,525 dinars (77 cents), while diesel increased by 0.152 dinars to 2,205 dinars (67 cents).
In the statement, it was stated that the price of oil per barrel is expected to exceed 100 dollars by the end of 2022, and it was noted that no change was made in the price of oil used for lighting and heating.
In Tunisia, where fuel prices were increased four times during the year, 30 million tons of fuel aid was provided from Libya to Tunisia during the fuel crisis in September.
