Economy Minister hopes energy vouchers won’t be needed

By: P.T., STA

Economy Minister Zdravko Počivalšek has confirmed the government is considering introducing energy vouchers to help the most vulnerable groups of population cope with rising prices, but also said they hoped such measures would not be necessary.

The minister commented on potential measures during a visit to steel company SIJ Metal Ravne after the government imposed a temporary cap on margins on heating oil yesterday. Počivalšek noted that the issue of rising energy prices is a complex one and thus not easy to tackle. “We cannot affect gas prices because we rely fully on imports.”
