The Balearic government is to open talks with the petrol companies operating in the Balearics in a bid to bring down the costs of fuel for farmers and fishermen. Both the farming and fishing communities pay more for their fuel than their colleagues on the mainland and the government either wants fuel prices reduced or prices in the Balearics brought in line with those on the mainland. Yesterday the government's motion received the unanimous support of parliament with political parties on all sides of the house angry over farmers and fishermen being discriminated against. The Balearic government also received cross-party backing to push ahead with plans to break up the petrol distribution monopoly in the Balearics which would eventually mean cheaper petrol for the general public.
