Croatian Government decided to extend its previous decision on capping the price of motor fuels for another 30 days in order to mitigate the impact of the recent jump of oil prices on international markets on the country’s economy and its citizens.

However, this time only two basic fuel types – eurosuper 95 and eurodiesel are affected by the price cap, while the price of premium fuels are no longer capped. Previously, oil company INA announced that it will stop the production of premium fuels while the price cap is in force.

In mid-October, Government has decided to introduce a cap on the retail prices of petrol and diesel for the next 30 days. According to the decision, the maximum retail price of petrol is capped at 1.48 euros per liter, while the maximum price of diesel is limited at 1.46 euros.
