Speaking at an IMF conference last Wednesday, the Minister said: “I increased the price of fuel by 15 percent and then realised that was not enough. I came back again  in April and raised it by another 15  percent and I came back again just a few weeks ago and raised it by another 15 percent. They haven't rioted yet,"
