NEW TYPES OF FUEL
New types of fuel will be sold at the petrol stations in Macedonia, now that the Liquid Fuels Regulations finally apply. They introduce higher-quality diesel and "green" petrol.
Four new petroleum derivatives will be available on the market, all with reduced sulphur content. Eurosuper BS 98 will be sold for MKD 2 more than Super 98; the price of Eurosuper BS 95 has gone up by MKD 1.5 and the piece of diesel 5 by MKD 0.5; MKD 26.2 per kilo is the new price of petroleum jelly. A transitional period during which old derivatives would be replaced by the new in state reserves and at petrol stations will last 15 days for diesel and two months for other fuels.
The prices of the new oil derivatives were practically formed overnight. Until two days ago, there were no official announcements from the Regulatory Commission and OKTA, although new oil derivatives were expected on the market a year and a half ago.
Their launch was postponed by an agreement between OKTA and the government, in turn for the oil refinery writing off the debt of EUR 94 million that the government was supposed to pay under a Paris court decision.
