As part of the new EU rules governing fuel costs, the EU said it would look into how to calculate fuel costs for rocket engines.
The move comes amid a growing concern about the impact of fuel shortages on the economy.
“There is a growing number of cases of fuel shortage in Europe and the cost could be even higher than that of the fuel,” a spokeswoman said.
The spokeswoman added that it was still being decided whether to look at rocket fuel strains.
“If the EU is able to agree an international framework for rocket fuel prices, it is expected that this would be in line with international guidelines,” she said.
A rocket engine is a type of fuel that is used to power a rocket, but the fuel is a combination of solid rocket fuel and liquid oxygen.
It is a relatively small quantity compared to the fuel consumed by the US, Russia and China.
It was launched on April 8, 2020, and is the largest rocket ever launched from the International Space Station.
