Taxi drivers and owners on Monday called on the energy minister to set a maximum price on fuel prices.

In a statement, the association supported the government’s plan to begin gradually easing measures, “as it is vital to restarting the economy”.

However, some have been using this time to profiteer, particularly fuel companies. “Fuel prices have been following an upward trend for the past three weeks, and that is the price that will end up being charged to consumers,” the statement said.

Finally, the statement asked minister Natasa Pilides “to intervene and impose a maximum limit on transactions between consumers and companies, and to set maximum prices based on global market indicators and the availability of these products”.
