MOSCOW, 3 Oct — PRIME. The average price for the most popular brand of AI-92 gasoline at Moscow gas stations for the week from September 26 to October 3 decreased by 1 kopeck, to 47.86 rubles per liter, for the first time since mid-July, follows from the data of the Moscow Fuel Association (MTA).
Gasoline AI-95 also fell in price for the first time since July, and also by 1 kopeck, to 53.09 rubles per liter. The last time the cost of these two brands decreased at Moscow gas stations was in mid-July 2022.
The price of AI-100 gasoline fell the most during the reporting period; it lost 7 kopecks in a week and amounted to 62.45 rubles. A liter of diesel fuel has fallen in price by 4 kopecks, to 54.53 rubles.
Gasoline rose in price at Rosneft gas stations, but became cheaper at Gazprom Neft and ESA. The cost of diesel fuel decreased at the gas stations of Rosneft and Gazprom Neft.
The cost of fuel in Moscow has stabilized and even began to decline slightly in early March. Prior to that, gasoline prices at Moscow filling stations began to rise noticeably in 2020, while diesel fuel has risen in price since mid-January 2021. This happened after the rapid growth of wholesale prices on the stock exchange. Last summer, the rate of growth in fuel prices accelerated so much that measures to contain them were discussed, up to a ban on exports and an agreement with oil companies, but they were not taken.
