According to the regulations of the Government of the RS, the allowed margin in retail was 0.25 KM, while individual traders of oil derivatives say that they worked with far smaller margins than prescribed.
As of tomorrow, fuel distributors in the Republic of Srpska are announcing an increase in fuel prices. They justify it by increasing refinery prices. Due to the formation of prices higher than allowed last year, the inspectors found the most irregularities at gas stations. Fines in the amount of 2.2 million marks were issued for non-compliance with the decision on margin limitation. Is it possible to put an end to those who constantly break the rules?
Higher fuel prices are not helping drivers. They say they did not hope for a new price increase, because the current prices are too high for their budget. The price of diesel today in Bosnia and Herzegovina is entity was 2.89, and gasoline was 2.57 marks per liter.
In the previous month, fuel prices were changed several times, which was determined during the inspection control.
– Most of the procedures that went to court are ongoing. We also had those cases where the courts took some mitigating circumstances that the subjects referred to and imposed lesser or even suspended sentences, which creates a problem for us in our further work – pointed out the spokesperson of the inspectorate of the Republika Srpska, Duška Nikolić.
According to the regulations of the Government of the RS, the allowed margin in retail was 0.25 KM, while individual traders of oil derivatives say that they worked with far smaller margins than prescribed. The prices they form, they say, depend on the parameters of refinery prices for diesel, and they have increased by seven pfennigs per liter. This is how they justify the new price increase.
– There should be an increase in prices in order for them to survive. Starting tomorrow, the price of fuel will increase by five to six pfennigs, and what will happen next is difficult to predict – said the director of Krajina-petrol, Milovan Bajić.
