The government will extend the tax cut on petroleum products for the next two months, according to CNN Portugal. But fix the values and stop revisiting them every week.
The government will extend tax cuts on petroleum products in July and August to bring down the final price of fuel. CNN Portugal knows that this decision was approved this Thursday by the Council of Ministers and that it has new characteristics.
The current tax reduction applied only to the months of May and June, thus ending on June 30th. But as fuel prices remain very high, the government decided to extend the decision for another two months, thus covering July and August.
But the model is not exactly the same. The government decided to stop weekly reviews of ISP cuts, as it has done so far, and fix the cuts. Recall that the original goal was to achieve with the help of ISP the equivalent of reducing VAT from 23% to 13%. To do this, the government has launched a set of measures, which now intends to simplify.
Overall, as government sources have been able to confirm to CNN Portugal, the measures approved by the Council of Ministers will constitute a decrease of 28.2 cents per liter of diesel fuel and 32.1 cents per liter of gasoline.which is close to the current values.
According to data from the Directorate General of Energy and Geology from this Thursday, the average price of plain diesel fuel in mainland Portugal is currently 2,062 euros per litre. The average price of regular gasoline 95 is 2101 euros per liter.

Remember that there are two types of cholesterol: HDL (“good”) and LDL (“bad”). “Good” cholesterol is responsible for removing excess cholesterol from the blood and what is deposited in the arteries, transporting it back to the liver, where it is excreted. “Bad” cholesterol transports cholesterol from the liver to tissues where it can be used.
Recommended blood cholesterol values:
Total cholesterol – LDL cholesterol – HDL cholesterol – > 40 mg/dl in men and > 45 mg/dl in women
Summer is still on, but winter is fast approaching, and European countries are making contingency plans to avoid running out of energy while Russia cuts back on the amount of gas it sends to Europe.
Based on a “reasonable worst-case scenario”, the British government is already gearing up for several days of the winter months when the cold could combine with gas shortages, causing “power outages” across the country, reaching industry and homes. .
Unidentified sources tell Bloomberg that London’s forecast is that the electricity grid will only be able to guarantee a sixth of the power during peak demand, after the government presented contingency plans to reopen coal-fired power plants. .
The worst-case scenario assumes that the United Kingdom will suffer blackouts for four days in January 2023 and that it will have to activate measures to reduce gas consumption at a time when gas supplies from Norway and France are also reduced. , while every country tries to secure its supplies for the coldest months of the year.
However, the British government believes that the worst scenario may not materialize, but does not rule out the possibility that, in the end, it will come true.
Bloomberg notes that this problem should be dealt with by whoever succeeds outgoing Prime Minister Boris Johnson next September. In a worst-case scenario, Liz Truss or Rishi Sunak will have an energy and social crisis on their hands, as the British public has expressed great dissatisfaction with a significant increase in the cost of energy, which could double in the face of rising inflation. and reduced purchasing power.
Russian airlines, including state-owned Aeroflot, are stripping planes to secure spare parts they can’t buy abroad due to Western sanctions, Reuters reported, citing four industry sources.
The companies are following Moscow’s guidance in June and are reaching out to some aircraft to get the parts they need to keep the rest of the fleet operational until at least 2025.
A source told Reuters that at least one Sukhoi Superjet 100 and one Aeroflot Airbus A350 are being dismantled, with the Airbus jet being “almost new”.
But the state-owned company has also stripped parts from some Boeing 737s and Airbus A320s to keep other planes of the same model flying.
Almost 80% of Aeroflot’s fleet is owned by the two largest aircraft manufacturers – 134 Boeing and 146 Airbus aircraft, and about 80 aircraft – Russian-made Sukhoi Superjet-100, which, according to the latest data, use many foreign-made parts, Reuters notes.
It will also be difficult for Moscow to buy parts from countries that have not imposed sanctions against Russia after the invasion of Ukraine. Asian and Middle Eastern airlines fear “secondary sanctions” from the West if they supply equipment, a source told the agency.
