Fuels cheaper by PLN 0.30

– We are introducing a reduction in fuel prices – announced the Prime Minister. – From December 20, we are implementing a reduction in fuel prices through the maximum reduction in excise duty allowed by the EU. In addition, from December 20 this year. by May 30, 2022, fuels will be exempt from sales tax and we will implement solutions related to the abolition of the emission fee – the Prime Minister announced. – All this will make fuel prices fall by about PLN 0.20-30. – announces the head of government.


But this is not the end. There are also plans to cut public administration expenditure.

– We will look at each zloty not twice, but three times. We will not create new earmarked funds or create new jobs. We are basically blocking the creation of new jobs in administration. We will also introduce changes to the operation of the Covid-19 counteracting fund, said Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.

– We are also introducing a cover allowance according to income criteria, from 400 PLN to over 1000 PLN depending on the household. It will be paid in two installments in 2022 – Morawiecki informed.

The Prime Minister mentioned that the government initially wanted to reduce VAT on food to zero, “but unfortunately the European Union has a different policy and it did not agree to it.” – So we decided to compensate the Poles for the increase in food prices and instead of a VAT reduction, we decided on a compensatory instrument, i.e. a shielding allowance – he explained.
