Under the new rules adopted in November 2021, petrol prices are to be regulated on the first, 11th, and 21st days of each month, putting prices into a 10-day cycle on a par with global market fluctuations which may occur.
The world petroleum market as of December 25 has been heavily influenced by several key factors, including a decrease in US oil inventories and an overall reduction in oil production in Kazakhstan and Libya, both of which have fueled petrol prices in the global market.
