Syrian government raises petrol, wheat and flour prices
The Syrian authorities have raised the prices of petrol, wheat and flour, state media said Monday, three days after the price of diesel was hiked amid a severe economic crisis in the war-torn country.
"The ministry of Internal Trade and Consumer Protection issued a decision to raise the selling price of 95-octane gasoline to 60 Syrian pounds ($0.75) per litre," said pro-regime daily Al-Watan.
