Belgrade daily Politika reported that fuel, gas and electricity prices will go up in August because of a new duty introduced by the government.
The duty is intended to cover the costs of promoting energy efficiency, the daily said adding that the prices of vehicle fuel and natural gas will be raised by 0.15 Dinars a litre and per cubic metre respectively, as well as 0,015 dinars per each kWh of electricity. That money will be used to replace windows and doors, install insulation and invest in heating boilers.

Public enterprise Srbijagas said that it had informed its consumers that the prices would be higher on their July gas bills, and added that the prices would be raised once a year.
Electricity bills for July will also be higher under the law on compensation for the use of public resources.
Politika also reported that the money would not end up in Srbijagas, the Electric Power Industry of Serbia (EPS) or vehicle fuel suppliers but will be paid straight into the state budget to be used to improve energy efficiency.
