Negotiations between Slovnaft and government continue

Petrol and diesel prices in Slovakia rose by an average of one heller and two hellers per litre respectively between April 20 and May 2, the Statistics Office reported on May 9.

According to the Office's calculations, the prices of 95-octane and 98-octane petrol in March 2007 rose by an average of 3.68 and 3.25 percent, respectively. Diesel prices rose by 1.91 percent.

The government and the Slovnaft fuel refinery sat down to negotiate fuel prices once again on May 9.

Economy Minister Ľubomír Jahnátek said on May 10 that the negotiations had been worthwhile.

Following the government session on May 10, Finance Minister Ján Počiatek ruled out the possibility of the government contributing to a decrease in fuel prices by reducing taxes.
