The Ministry of Co-operatives and Internal Trade says it will conducted a study in regard to the increase in prices of essential commodities. 

Secretary of the Ministry Sunil S. Sirisena says it is normal for the prices of essential goods to rise parallel to fuel prices. 

However, he told Ada Derana, that information is being received continuously regarding businessmen who are increasing prices as they see fit without setting a reasonable price.
