The growth of prices for gasoline in Russia experienced in the spring of 2018, may be repeated. This is stated in the letter of the President of the Russian fuel Union (RTS) Eugene arkose of the presidential administration (AP), excerpts of which leads to RBC.
The message is addressed to the assistant Manager of AP Cyril Molodtsova. The Arcos warns him that a liter of gasoline in the near future could rise by 4.4 per ruble. The reason is that fuel exports once again becomes more profitable than selling to the domestic market, because rising prices it is limited to the government.
Also to a rise in price may cause increase in excise duties on petrol and VAT from 18% to 20% and the weakening of the ruble. This will increase the export parity — the cost of supplies to Europe, minus export duties and transportation costs.
The Arcos asked the presidential administration to take measures to prevent a new rise in petrol price.
Gasoline began to rise in price in Russia in April 2018. By may, the growth rate was eight rubles per liter. To curtail the government cancelled the increase in excise duties on petrol and made a budgetary maneuver involving the payment of excise duty return of the Russian oil refining factories (NPZ) in the case that the price of fuel on the world market will exceed vnutrerossiyskie.
