AMMAN — The fuel price difference item received on electricity bills is not a tax, and is subject to increase or decrease depending on the price of liquefied natural gas linked to international oil prices, Energy Minister Hala Zawati said on Thursday.

During a visit to the Irbid District Electricity Company, Zawati said that 93 per cent of the fuel used to produce electricity depends on liquefied natural gas, whose price witnessed hikes due to price increases of Brent oil, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

Company Director General Ahmad Theinat said that the company seeks to gain investments to develop its financial resources.
