International variables and the Ancap stop

From the Executive power warned that they will continue monitoring the evolution of international energy variables, “with the commitment to safeguard economic activity and the purchasing power of Uruguayan households,” at a time when the price of Petroleum can be volatile, due to war in Middle East between Israel and Hamas.
