The Ministry of Industry and SMEs announced in a statement posted on its Facebook page on Saturday, March 30 evening, that it was decided to increase the selling prices of certain petroleum products from midnight , based on the periodic adjustment mechanism for fuel prices, in effect since July 2016.

For this purpose, the new prices are fixed as follows :
– Unleaded petrol at 2.065 dinars per liter (+0,080 dinar)
