Elections 2022, Di Maio: “Everyone is committed to gas price caps”

“Instead of unrealizable promises, I hope that all political forces will work to prevent Italians from becoming impoverished bill after bill”

Do not make fun of the Italians with promises that would lead the country to default, but engage everyone in the battle for the gas price ceiling. This is the message contained in a post on Facebook by the Foreign Minister, Luigi Di Maio, leader of Civic Engagement, who writes: “Yesterday gas prices reached a new high of 250 euros per megawatt hour on the Amsterdam stock exchange, and then stabilize at 223. We went from around 84 euros in early July to over 190 euros in early August to exceed 200 in these days. We are talking about prices 10 times the average of the last 5 years “.



“The consequences in the bill for citizens and businesses are likely to be very heavy this autumn – warns Di Maio – The priority of our country must be the battle for the maximum gas price ceiling, the only way to steadily control prices. At the same time we must act immediately to reduce energy bills, to zero VAT on basic necessities (bread, pasta, medicines) and reduce it on food items such as meat and fish “.

The minister recalls that “we had been carrying out this battle for months and it stopped because of those who irresponsibly brought down the government”. “Instead of making fun of Italians with unrealizable promises that would lead to default (like a flat tax that would cost 100 billion), I hope – concludes Di Maio – that all political forces will work to prevent Italians from becoming impoverished bill after bill and that pledge to uphold the gas price cap in every international location, starting immediately. We cannot wait until November to achieve this at a European level. We are committed to doing so. “
