“The Government will ensure the supply of petroleum products (liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), diesel and unleaded gasoline) in the best possible conditions despite the difficulties of public finances,” said the Minister of Industry, Mines and Energy, Neila Gonji.

There is no shortage of petroleum products marketed in Tunisia,” she said in a statement to TAP on the sidelines of the national conference on “Tunisia’s energy strategy in the future: “The energy strategy of Tunisia by 2035” held Friday in the capital.

Referring to a possible increase in fuel prices, the minister explained that the finance law has already provided for new increases in 2023 but this decision will be studied first, within the framework of a technical working group and then at the government level.

“We are trying to take into account the situation and the purchasing power of the citizen,” she said, noting that whatever fuel price increases are decided, accompanying measures will be taken while taking into account as much as possible the purchasing power of the citizen and ensuring the availability of these products.
