Prospects of decreased prices on fuel

Georgian Dream representative Levan Izoria says that the price on fuel will be decreased by 20 tetris after the Georgian Dream officially comes to power. According to him, the fuel price in the market is artificially up and a monopoly does not make it possible to bring it down. After the Georgian Dream comes to power, the monopoly will disappear and free competition will bring the prices down.
