BUDAPEST (Reuters) - Hungary's government will decide about the extension of a price cap on fuels based on information from oil and gas group MOL on whether the company is able to ensure supply, Prime Minister Viktor Orban's chief of staff told a briefing on Wednesday.
The fuel price caps expire at the end of December.
"There are worrying news," Gulyas said, listing new EU sanctions and a continued reduction in output at MOL's refinery in Szazhalombatta. "If conditions arise when there is not enough gasoline and diesel then we need to take a step."
