The government has suspended the ban on gasoline exports for manufacturers: exports are allowed until June 30. After this date, however, the previously introduced ban will come into force again and will remain in effect until the end of the summer. The reason for the temporary relaxation is the stocking of warehouses with motor gasoline, which can lead to a decrease in fuel production.

A ban on the export of fuel from Russia was introduced on March 1, 2024. It is valid until August 31. It does not apply to supplies under international intergovernmental agreements, as well as to fuel exported for personal use.

The market began to fill up in April: from the middle of the month, prices for petroleum products began to fall. At the same time, rumors appeared that the moratorium would soon be temporarily lifted, and against their background, gasoline prices rose slightly.

The previous and first ban in Russian history was introduced in the fall of 2023. The reason was the price crisis in the fuel market, which became insufficient for domestic use: farmers complained about too expensive petroleum products during the harvest season. The situation could not be resolved without introducing an export ban.

Despite government measures, the cost of gasoline in Moscow has increased by almost seven percent over the past year. Diesel fuel has risen in price even more, adding 7.4 percent, and AI-98 gasoline has become 10.6 percent more expensive for Moscow residents over the year.
