Omari said the world is experiencing an “exceptional circumstance” and that the government must take a decision against raising prices. He denounced the government’s levying JD0.003 tax on every litre of gasoline.

Omari pointed out that the tax is high and that citizens cannot afford it, if prices continue to rise globally. He urged the government to freeze it or suspend it for a period of at least six months.
