Landau: Returning Price Controls on Diesel Fuel

The Infrastructures Ministry asked the Price Committee in the Finance Ministry, on Sunday, to meet and implement a new law for supervision of diesel fuel prices.

Infrastructure Minister Uzi Landau said the government's guiding principle is to get involved as little as possible in the market, yet it's the government's responsibility to protect the citizens from the extremes of a market failure, which he said was clearly in evidence.
