However, the pumps will end the peace process, when the three month adjustment of the tax components is adjusted.

This, plus the impact of VAT and gross profit territory, puts a price per liter of weight in the case of naphthalene. The effect would be less on diesel.
However, this price will not be adjusted for the increase in oilseed rafts and the exchange rate for February.
