The government’s beacon on fuels: ready against speculation

After having approved and extended the excise cut decree, the Government continues its work of containment of expensive fuels, which has terrified motorists so much in the past few weeks. The next move by the executive is explained by the Minister of Economic Development, Giancarlo Giorgetti, during Question time in the Chamber.

Responding to a question by the deputy Federico Fornaro (Liberi e Uguali), the holder of the Mise also speaks of the planned “strengthening of the tools available to the Ministry to carry out control activities” against any speculations on petrol and diesel.

The Sheriff is here

Giorgetti in fact recalls that, despite the price being “liberalized”, it is up to the Government to “evaluate and monitor the trend to prevent speculative phenomena” and check that “the interventions on excise duties are not incorporated for the benefit of the distributors’ companies instead of consumers. “. A blow that, according to information from the Guarantor for price surveillance, has hit the mark.

Then, however, the Minister gives the details of the plan. Since the Mise now uses “internal resources not specifically suited to the need” to make these checks, the decree law already to the attention of the Chambers provides for “the birth of a ‘Mission unit‘, training in progress “.

He is the so-called Price Sheriff, who had peeped into the Ukraine decree and who “should provide the tool and then activate, in collaboration with the Guardia di Finanza and other institutions, a whole mechanism that can lead to sanctions for those who operate in a manner contrary to market trends “.

Another extension?

Parliament also expressed its opinion on the petrol and diesel issue, with the majority resolution to the Economic and Financial Document (Def) which asks the Government to “use the space deriving from the maneuver for new expansionary initiatives by arranging further measures to contain the increase in energy prices as well as by revising the system of reference prices and fuels”.

This last point is reported by theAnsawho also adds another statement by Giorgetti: “The dynamics of fuel prices remains a leading issue on which the Government’s attention is highest, which will continue, implementing it, in the monitoring activity, as well as in the evaluation of measures necessary to control prices, including the extension of the cut in excise duties arranged in the latest decree law “.

Go ahead with the plan for the car

But the Minister also makes a broader speech on the car. This time it is the deputies Benamati and Bonomo (Democratic Party) who give the lead. The owner of the Mise points out earlier that the measures to support demand have already made their appearance, with the Dpcm on purchase incentives.

After this first “phase”, a second measure will arrive “in the coming weeks” to dictate the “multi-year measures concerning the supply side”. In practice for helping businesses to convert to sustainable mobility, as foreseen by the maxi floor of Palazzo Chigi. Mise will use development contracts and innovation agreements for this.
