Hassan Calls for Reducing Fuel Prices
Uncertainty Over Fuel Deliveries
The Ministry of Finance has proposed to President Michel Suleiman and the outgoing Prime Minister, Saad Hariri, to reduce the price of 20 liters of fuel by LL5, 000. “I am awaiting their response to the proposal,” she said. Hassan was speaking after meeting with representatives of the oil companies and fuel stations. The meeting was intended to discuss the weekly review of the prices of oil derivatives, which is due today. The Ministry of Energy and Water refused to issue the list, prompting the oil companies to declare that they will continue fuel deliveries but they don’t know for how long. “The question question to the Minister of Energy and Water is: Will he accept the consequences of a shortage iof fuel in the country?” said Hassan.
