Fuel prices have risen again this Friday, May 17 at several service stations in Morocco. Prices should continue to climb.
The price of gasoline this morning reached 10.28 dirhams while the liter of diesel costs 9.78 dirhams.
It should be noted that the last increase in fuel prices was recorded at the beginning of May.
Recall that during the last session of oral questions, under the Hemicycle, the Minister Delegate for General Affairs and Governance Lahcen Daoudi was adamant. In the light of soaring international prices, capping is an irrevocable decision, if not a matter of time for it to become effective.
“Fuel prices are on the rise and this is likely to lead to further increases should the situation in the Middle East get worse,” Lahcen Doudi told the House of Councilors on Tuesday.
The Executive assumes its responsibilities towards the citizens. He promised the cap and he will keep his promise, he says. As for the delay in this decision (note: the initial date was between the end of February 2019 and the middle of March), it is incumbent upon the ongoing consultations between the six political parties in the government, thus refuting the accusations of incapacity and flight forward, uttered against the Executive.
Moreover, Daoudi assured that in the event that fuels experienced another price explosion, the government could take appropriate measures and not shirk its responsibilities. Just as he has expressed his fears that the price of a barrel of oil Brent will reach $ 100 if a conflict engulfs the Middle East.
