The Russian Fuel Union wrote to Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin in July, expressing concern over the deteriorating pricing situation. As stated in the letter, wholesale costs are rising at a rate substantially faster than inflation, but retail prices are being held steady by inflation, causing independent gas stations to lose money.
An increase in export tariffs on petroleum products, according to the organization, would be an efficient way to slow the rise in wholesale costs.
