As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, yet another very unwelcome new increase in Croatian fuel prices is expected from Tuesday the 15th of March. As it turns out, that fuel price leap will stand at about one kuna and 60 lipa, meaning that a litre of petrol would rise to 13 kuna and 79 lipa, and diesel to 14 kuna and 13 lipa per litre. Some Croatian economists are reassuring people that oil will not become so expensive for a long time yet, as reported by

“This rise in Croatian fuel prices is likely to come to a halt later on this year, regardless of the outcome of the political and military situation unfolding over in Ukraine, meaning that market mechanisms will begin to work, namely at high prices, and consumers will begin to reduce their consumption,” said well known Croatian economic analyst Damir Novonty.

Bus transport companies, which have faced hardship after hardship as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and its accompanying restrictions, as well as a lack of state intervention, will no longer be able to function normally without the help of the government.

The above was recently warned about from the Association of Public Line Carriers, especially in rural areas of the country where buses are the only means of transport for locals to get to school, work, pharmacies or to the shops. You can read more about that here.

Until then, Croatian transport companies, primarily bus carriers, the association says, will be forced to raise their ticket prices by 30 percent if government aid continues to lack as we move forward. An example of that would be that a typical Zagreb-Split bus ticket would increase in price by about fifty kuna.
