Not as much joy as necessity. On average, the Lithuanian citizen travels 20 times in the store a month. Similar work. According to a number of Nielsen market research companies, the frequency has not been determined by anything else, and the prices are bought less by people because they are asking for shares, they get discounts.
Public polls confirm: livelihood, what needs to be done is the greatest concern of people.

Rim Urbonaitė, professor at Mykolas Romeris University (MRU), a political scientist, agrees that prices are a real concern for people.
"People, of course, are very worried and worried, and first of all, what do they look for? They follow power, can they help me? And if only the government can solve such a difficult problem, governments will be pleased and will thank strong and even could pave the way, a successful way for other elections. That is, I think this escalation is by no means only ", – says a politologist.

Sociologist V. Gaidys looks at the Prime Minister's assessments. They are stable for about a year. Residents see S. Skvernelis among the presidential candidates – they themselves identify him in such surveys. Although S.Skvernelis did not say so or not.
"At present, the Prime Minister is the third, we will see Gitanas Nausėda, Ingrida Šimonytė and S. Skvernelis in November. And here is a pretty important moment, but that is supported by those people who are precisely those prices very important, which counts all these things. This is the candidate for those people ", – considers V. Gaidys.
The prime minister said the decisions taken now are unrelated to the upcoming elections.
"It's time for some choices to come in. Now, local elections are getting closer, but you should, apparently, seem to judge whether the question is high or what solutions are being sought." The government will approve both draft laws and government resolutions in November, and we will see that this is not about elections, "explains S.Skvernelis.
You will not be overwhelmed. Urbonaitė, a political scientist, says that it will be complicated by S. Skvernelis, who will not be able to retreat without anything. He has already pointed out that prices are important to him.

According to economists, the fall in prices can be achieved, but it takes a long time, a few years. Specialist K.Ghecas believes that people will not be patient for a long time. And next year, electricity increases, which automatically generates some, and often most, prices. The price theme in comfort can become slippery.
"Now, the price theme is high, so to say, probably the most popular three, this is the most popular trinity for all the problems, and maybe even the number one, because if they do nothing or not, in other words, a person does not feel that way, so can she do, "said a politologist.
Mr Gecas notes that a strategy can be planned to demonstrate a price fighter.
"Unless the strategy is really planned to show it as a fighter (premiere -LRT.lt) and then, of course, it will be quite a populist way – they blame others for hindering work, I really want to do , but it does not go, and so on. But this is not a constructive one, but a more populous one, "says Ghetch.
"Baltic Studies" announces that the first assessment has fallen during the month and is already more than favorable in its unfavorable assessment. According to the survey, S.Skvernëlis gave up top ten high-ranking politicians. Government low and confident. But the head of "Vilmorus," who will publish the latest survey after a week, says the prime minister is still more popular than the government himself and many ministers.
