The Natural Agency for Energy Regulation (NAER) made again changes to the methodology for calculating and applying the prices of oil products. The business entities will be obliged to report the retail prices of all the oil products for the next day to the Agency. The information will be presented on each workday, for each filling station, until 4pm, through the agency of an electronic platform, IPN reports.
In the October 12 meeting, Andrei Adam, of NAER, said the Agency undertakes to ensure public access to information about the address of each filling station and the prices set by the stations. Through this platform, the data can be sorted according to such criteria as “lowest price” and “location”. The authors of the draft decision aim to offer the consumers a simple instrument for identifying and choosing the most advantageous fuel seller in a particular area.
The law on the oil products market provides that the operators can also retail other types of oil products than those for which price ceilings are set, on condition that the main oil products of the standard type are also sold at the same filling station. If gasoline “95” is not sold at the station, the sale of another type of gasoline, like “98” or with different additives, is not allowed there, stated Andrei Adam.
