The Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) sent a letter to independent and vertically integrated gas stations (gas stations) with a request to reduce the cost of selling petroleum products. As RBC reports with reference to the regulator, the FAS drew attention to the decrease in fuel prices on the stock exchange.
At the same time, the FAS indicated that in the absence of measures to reduce the cost of selling gasoline and other types of fuel, the refusal “will be considered as a sign of a violation of antimonopoly legislation.”
Now the FAS is checking the validity of prices in the small wholesale sale of fuel from oil depots and the formation of prices along the way from purchases at refineries to sales at gas stations.
It is already known that six cases have been initiated in five Russian regions on grounds of violation of the law on the protection of competition.
It was previously reported that in January-September, new cars, light commercial vehicles, trucks and buses of domestic production occupied only 50% of the domestic Russian market. The rest were released not in Russia.
