GORKI, July 9 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian Agriculture Ministry reports no seasonal hike in prices for fuel and lubricants in the country, Agriculture Minister Nikolai Fedorov said on Tuesday during a televised conference chaired by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev. The conference was devoted to the harvesting activities in the country in the current year.
“The prices of fuel and lubricants decreased as compared January 10, 2012. Herewith, diesel prices slid down by 0.3 percent, but car gasoline prices went up by 0.8 percent,” Fedorov said.
“Usually, I put forth the figures to demonstrate an unjustified growth of prices on behalf of traders,” the minister said.
“However, there is no the problem of the kind. But I should state that prices of diesel fuel grew by 12 percent, as compared to the same period of 2012, while gasoline prices increased by 5.6 percent,” he said, adding that hike in the prices of the kind may be explained by the inflation processes in the country and some other factors.
