MOSCOW, June 28 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s Economic Development Ministry forecasts that the oil prices may drop below $100 per barrel by the end of the year.

The deputy minister said at this moment the official forecast remains unchanged. It is expected that by the end of the year the oil price per barrel will total $105. Nevertheless, he said “there is a substantial probability that the price per barrel will be slightly lower.”
