The government will keep the growth of prices for motor fuel in 2019 in the range of inflation, a sharp rise in prices next year, as predicted by some experts, will not, said in an interview with TV channel «Russia 24» Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak.

Answering the question of what some experts predict that next year the sharp rise in gasoline prices in the 4.5 rubles due to the growth of excises and VAT, the Deputy Prime Minister said that «it will not.»

«Oil at $ 86 for the budget is good for consumers, not so much. But we work together with oil companies held the retail price of motor fuel. I think we will be able to solve this problem, including owing back in the spring action, and by additional regulation of our relations with the oil we can keep the growth of prices for motor fuel in the range of inflation. We are talking about gasoline and diesel fuel,» — said Kozak.

«There are mechanisms in the framework of the tax maneuver, which allow to solve this problem. Export netback (netback, the revenue from the sale of oil or petroleum products on exports minus spending on transport – ed.) will hold through the fair sharing of revenues between the oil companies and the state budget. Given the budget windfall from rising oil prices, we can keep the retail price in the domestic market in the range of inflation», — said Deputy Prime Minister.
