On Tuesday, the Cabinet decided to freeze the kerosene tax during the winter season to alleviate the burden on citizens, especially those with low income, under the directives of His Majesty King Abdullah.

Chairman of the EMRC Ziyad Saaida said that the commission's staff will continue to oversee and follow up on prices of kerosene to ensure they are accurate. The staff, she added, will also be doing field inspection to ensure adherence to the new decision.

The commission, she said, is committed to implementing emergency plans and ensuring that all necessary measures are taken to continue supplying the Kingdom with its energy needs.
