"Fortunately, my job covers my fuel prices and that is why I am driving car nowadays. But i understand very well how hard is to pay such extremely high price everyday, especially for those who have long distance to cover daily. This is one of the reasons that many cars are on gas now which is pretty dangerous."
Marika, manager, 38

Well, of course it makes influence , those sum which might be spend on private or family interest is being spent in fuel . the reason of this is monopolistic situation in the state , inexistence of real anti monopoly service and is based on political and business ambitions . The price of fuel has regulated abroad , when it still remains too high in Georgia .”
