Russian Government refuses to reduce export duty on gasoline

The Russian Government hasn’t supported the initiative of oil companies to reduce oil export duty on straight-run gasoline, produced from gas. According to the Izvestia, Ministry of Economic Development opposed the reduction of customs duty on this category of fuel from the current rate of 90 % of the duty on crude oil to 66%.
