The Informer: Gasoline price puts pressure on prime minister as cost of living continues to rise | District News


news, local news,

Russia’s domestic war with Ukraine has hit even harder this week: inflation is expected to rise to its highest level since 2012. A weekly consumer survey by ANZ-Roy Morgan found that inflation expectations rose 0.4 percentage points to 5.6 percent. Uncertainty of inflation is combined with rising gasoline prices, and in recent months on some gasoline has risen from $ 1.70 to $ 2.20 per liter. Possessing some of the world’s lowest taxes on gasoline and diesel, Liberal prime ministers Dominique Perotte, Stephen Marshall and Peter Gutwein have put pressure on the prime minister to reduce excise taxes on fuel. During a visit to Perth on Tuesday, Prime Minister Scott Morrison told the media that his government is well aware of the significant impact of rising fuel prices across the country. “All Australians understand that this is due to the terrible war we are seeing in Europe and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine,” Mr Morrison said. Mr Morrison was in Perth to announce a $ 4.3 billion investment to build a dry dock and naval infrastructure for large ships at Henderson Shipyard. In maritime news welcomed by the cruise industry, Health Minister Greg Hunt announced that tourist cruises would be allowed to resume from April. Australian Carnival President Margaret Fitzgerald said the decision to restore was a significant breakthrough for the industry. On behalf of Labor on Tuesday, the federal opposition said it would restore the freedom of public workers to speak in public. The proposal also provides for increased funding for a wider range of nonprofits. As a sign that art is returning to the south, the design of Australia’s largest art gallery was presented in Melbourne. The Victoria Contemporary National Gallery will have 13,000 square feet of exhibition space, a rooftop sculpture terrace and a restaurant and is scheduled to open in 2028. Take care of yourself.
