Chukotka proposes to fix the price of fuel for the northern delivery
The government of Chukotka has offered to fix the wholesale price for petroleum products purchased for the regions for the time of northern delivery. The regional authorities sent this idea to the Russian government and the Federal Antimonopoly Service.
According to the press service of the government of Chukotka, the proposal to fix fuel prices was formed taking into account the geographical distance of the district, the lack of transport infrastructure and extremely limited periods of fuel supply to the region. To contain prices, the authorities of Chukotka also proposed to create a register of sole suppliers and manufacturers of petroleum products.
Now fuel prices are rising due to an increase in the purchase price of the product, an increase in transportation costs for its delivery, as well as storage costs and an increase in the VAT rate since the beginning of the year. Each year, Chukotka buys for the northern supply of about five to six thousand tons of gasoline, 16 thousand tons of jet fuel and 130 thousand tons of diesel fuel. The bulk of petroleum products supplied from Murmansk and Nakhodka.
