Fuel and electricity prices will not increase for the month of October, Hala Zawati, the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, announced on Sunday.

While it was predicted that fuel prices would rise next month, Zawati said earlier today that the Prime Ministry has agreed to keep fuel prices the same as they were for the month of September.

This is mainly because starting November, the government will replace the percentage based tax on fuel with a fixed tax.
