BUDAPEST (Reuters) – Hungary’s government has decided to extend price caps on fuels and basic foodstuff beyond their Oct. 1 expiry in order to shield households from surging prices, Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s chief of staff told a briefing on Saturday.

Gergely Gulyas also said the government would extend a cap on mortgage rates by “at least six months”. That measure would have expired at the end of this year.
