The Minister of Enterprise and Made in Italy Urso made new proposals to the three organisations. The strike starts at 19. Consumers report new speculative increases. The gas station attendant, the state raises prices and accuses us The list of open plants (ANSA)



"Too little and too late to revoke the strike" which therefore "remains confirmed".

Thus in a note the presidents of Fegica and Figisc/Anisa explaining that "the attempt in extremis made by Minister Urso, however appreciated, fails to intervene with the necessary concreteness".



"The announcement of the launch of the table aimed at restructuring the distribution network and restoring a regulatory plan certainly goes in the right and desired direction - write the presidents of Fegica, Roberto Di Vincenzo, of Figisc Bruno Bearzi and of Anisa Massimo Terzi - But the hypothesized changes to the decree, in addition to not being sufficient, are now in the hands of Parliament".

"What remains in the background, discounts or no discounts on fines, cartels or no cartels to display - they continue - is the idea of ​​a category of workers who speculate on fuel prices. Which is false and unacceptable. The strike is therefore confirmed, just as the category's intention to give its full contribution to the reform process, which has only been announced for now, remains confirmed.



The national presidency Faib Confesercenti, meeting urgently, following the meeting with Minister Urso, evaluated and deemed positive the openings presented and already formalized with an amendment to the decree law and decided to

reduce the mobilization to just one day

.

The decision will be presented at the coordination meeting with the other acronyms, set for tomorrow morning, Wednesday 25 January.



"The national presidency Faib Confesercenti, meeting urgently, following the meeting with Minister Urso - reads a note - evaluated and deemed positive the openings presented and already formalized with an amendment to the decree law".

In particular, explains Faib, "the significant reduction in fines, the rationalization of the signage on the plants, the rapid convening of a supply chain table to address the age-old problems of the sector, starting with contractual illegality and cutting costs for electronic transactions".

"As a sign of appreciation for the work carried out by the minister and his collaborators, and with the aim of reducing the inconvenience to citizens,

the Faib presidency therefore decided to reduce the mobilization to just one day.

The decision will be presented at the coordination meeting with the other acronyms, set for tomorrow morning, Wednesday 25 January".



The Minister of Enterprise and Made in Italy Adolfo Urso has made new proposals to the three organizations of fuel managers who have proclaimed a strike from this evening in an attempt to prevent the closure of the pumps.



The shutdown will start

from 7pm today on the ordinary network and from 10pm on the motorways and will last two days, until 26 January.

 It is the first strike during the Meloni government.

The organizations Faib, Fegica and Figisc-Anisa have decided to close the plants to protest against the measures of the Transparency decree on fuel prices and in particular against the display of billboards with the average regional weekly price and against the sanctions envisaged in the event of non-compliance with price advertising.

A protest confirmed even after the minister Adolfo Urso, owner of Mimit, had proposed an easing of the measures.

Yesterday Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni had defended the provision and stated that there is no turning back: "We have already summoned them twice, the government has never imagined measures to point out the category of petrol stations but to recognize the value of the many honest people.

Then the average price didn't say they were sky-high.

There has been very little speculation.

But we couldn't go back on a provision that is right, publishing the average price is common sense.

On the other we went to meet.

Nobody wants to hit the category."



"Correct the Transparency decree by

repealing the so-called billboard replacing it, if necessary, with a QR-Code or an App or with remote light devices in order to relieve petrol stations already today burdened with communication obligations and consequently cancel the additional penalties that they would be meaningless in the absence of fulfilments" is the request reiterated by the president of

Faib Confesercenti

Giuseppe Sperduto to the Production Activities commission in the Chamber which today started the hearings on the decree on the transparency of fuel prices on the day on which the 48-hour strike by petrol stations starts, starting this evening.

"The real speculation - explained Sperduto - lurks in the great VAT evasion that still impacts on the network and in the unacceptable contractual illegality that generates that phenomenon of oil illegal hiring which subtracts over ten billion euros a year from the state coffers, according to official sources".

"If there is a need for a decree for transparency and legality - he continued - it is for a decree against contractual illegality: only in this way can a blow be dealt to those who really speculate by defrauding the State".

On the occasion of the gas station strike, fuel prices are recording increases throughout the network, a circumstance that could represent yet another speculation to the detriment of motorists.

The

Codacons denounces it today

, which against the lockout of the distributors filed a complaint in the Prosecutor's Office for interruption of public service.

"The price increases at the pump in the last few hours risk causing considerable economic damage to citizens - explains the president Carlo Rienzi - In the face of a state of necessity represented by the need for motorists to fill up with fuel so as not to run out of fuel during the two days of strike, the same are forced to suffer rising prices throughout the network, a situation which once again confirms all our doubts and our complaints about the anomalies in the formation of price lists at the pump".

And it will now be the judiciary that decides on the petrol station strike: Codacons has in fact filed the
