Social networks disseminated information that starting from March 23, in Uzbekistan, petrol prices would rise, and gas stations would be closed.
As Uzbekneftegaz press service told Kun.uz, in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus infection in service areas, specialists will regularly conduct disinfection.
“Petrol stations will operate in a normal mode. There will be no changes in the work schedule,” the department noted.
The press service also emphasized that petrol prices are not rising.
“This is false information and is completely untrue,” Uzbekneftegaz concluded.
