Romanians are once again affected by growing prices which seem to change from one day to the other, France Presse informs.

Food sector trade unions criticized international networks for favoring imports at the expense of local products. One workers' federation head, Dragos Frumosu, said that the national market is practically blocked by supermarket interests.

That would not prevent farmers to expect a 10% increase of wheat and corn prices as fuel costs are already exceeding 1 euro per liter in a country where the average monthly salary stands at 350 euro.
