From the beginning of 2017, prices increased by 50-60 kopecks per liter.
2017 began to increase in fuel prices: 2.8% in January compared to December. In the short term prices will continue to increase, he said.
From the beginning of 2017, prices increased by 50-60 kopecks per liter. At the moment it is the potential for growth by 0.5-1 UAH “, – says Director of” Consulting group a-95 “Sergey Kuiun.
According to him, the main reason is delayed, the December increase in prices caused by OPEC’s decision to reduce oil production. This decision was taken in November 2016. Be the first to in December responded to the wholesale market and the retail price has not changed.
There is another reason of the price. 2017 cancelled 5-cent tax on retail sales, but in proportion to the increased basic excise duty on petroleum products. Currently it is charged at the border or in places of production, while in 2016, he was charged with refills. “For the legal market, in addition to the method of administration, nothing has changed. For the illegal part, and it was about 50% of the market, the situation has changed, ” – said the expert.
If earlier the excise duty on retail sales of illegal immigrants could not pay, now they have lost that opportunity, because they are forced to buy fuel from this tax.
