According to RIA Novosti, Rosstat materials testify to this.
Compared to June last year, retail gasoline prices in the country increased by 6.1%, and since the beginning of 2021 - by 4.4%.
Diesel fuel in June rose in price by 0.4%.
Russian Energy Minister Nikolai Shulginov said earlier that the current rise in exchange prices for gasoline would not have a significant impact on the dynamics of the retail price at gas stations.
In early June, Igor Yushkov, a leading analyst at the National Energy Security Fund, an expert at the Financial University under the Russian government, commented in an interview with the Economics Segodnya FBA about a record level of gasoline and diesel fuel reserves.
