Earlier today, the Ministerial Sub-Committee on Cost of Living stated that a decision has been made to revise fuel prices.

Minister of Energy Udaya Gammanpila added that the date of the amendment will be announced soon, explaining that due to the prevailing situation in the country, it was not possible to announce in advance when the amendment would be made because if so, people would be waiting in long queues at petrol stations.
