Sergey Sverchkov: Gasoline price fluctuations associated with changes in petroleum products’ purchase price
A slight reduction in fuel prices is due to a seasonal change of its purchase price. This was stated in an interview with the correspondent of the Donetsk News Agency by deputy of the DPR People’s Council, deputy chairman of the Transport and Communications Committee Sergey Sverchkov.
“On Monday, January 14, our citizens noticed that the cost of fuel and petroleum had changed at the gas station. Diesel fuel has risen in price by five rubles, gasoline and gas have fallen in price by two rubles. This is due to seasonal fluctuations in the wholesale purchase prices for petroleum products.
Besides, winter Euro-5 standard diesel fuel was delivered to the Republic, which is designed for temperature requirements up to -40 degrees. It is for this reason that it is now more expensive than in the previous period,” Sverchkov said.
