The chairman of Petroleum Goods Importers’ Union, Valentin Bodisteanu, noted that petroleum goods prices have increased as result of increase of prices for oil on the world market. According to him, the diesel oil didn’t register a significant increase, in order to avoid affecting certain categories of population. According to Bodisteanu, the experts of petroleum goods market have some doubts regarding the evolution of fuel prices. According to them, the cost of a barrel might get to 100 dollars, leading to a serious situation not only on Moldovan market. The oil prices on the world market have increased by 30%, and a barrel costs 75 dollars.
