The decision on capping prices will remain in effect for three months but can be extended, the prime minister’s chief of staff said. Gergely Gulyás said the reason last October’s prices were used as the reference for the cap was that there had been no inflation pressure then and “nobody was complaining yet” about prices at the time. Gulyás said that hopefully the measure would make life easier for those struggling to make ends meet. He noted that the price of sugar, wheat flour, sunflower-seed oil, pork leg, chicken breast and milk with 2.8 percent fat will be reduced to their price on Oct. 15 last year.
