Why gasoline in Russia is only getting more expensive

Why gasoline in Russia is only getting more expensive

It is unlikely that there is a car enthusiast in our country who would not ask himself the question: “Why are gas prices in Russia always rising - both when oil prices rise and when they fall?” People refueling at gas stations, if they encounter a reduction in fuel prices, it looks more like a mockery - a decrease, for example, by 1 kopeck per liter.

At the same time, every time we hear from the screens the words of experts who pretend to try to explain: “There is nothing like that, we live in a market situation, lower prices will hit the manufacturer and lead to job cuts.” But the decline in real wages does not lead to a reduction in the number of jobs.

There are those experts who try to make out the situation relatively objectively.

When asked why gasoline is not getting cheaper in our country, economist Oleg Komolov answers. In his authorial program “Prime Numbers”, he raises another acute question: why do oil companies in those periods when everything is fine do not share extra income with the state, and when oil prices go down, they ask the state for additional preferences. It turns out the game with one goal, when large corporations involved in mining, in any case, benefit.

The program of Oleg Komolov:

        Because .. Yes because !! In short. There are no low prices, only an increase in the price of gasoline. An increase in gas prices is necessary for the well-being and increase of income of the announcers of oil companies. These motorists and car drivers do not understand that everything is upside down.

          This imported gasoline with a slight movement of the hands of speculators would be sold at the same price as all the fuel that was produced in Russia, no one would refuse to profit - and gasoline is becoming more expensive because entities receive more than 1600 billion rubles in tax from local taxes budgets and the state to cut off these revenues by reducing production taxes and the rest will not.

        - I'll be brief. You know, just the other day I was at the Russian Academy of Sciences, had a conversation with many scientists, including young ones. By the way, they are very competent guys. So, we discussed, in particular, this problem, talked about the current economic situation in the country. They also talked about their plans for the future. Of course, first of all, they were worried about the problem of demand. The issue of mortgage loans was no less acute. But I can assure you that all these problems can be solved and we will direct all efforts to solve them in the very near future. This also applies to the topic raised in your question. "

          Just now, information flashed that "highly demanded", effective state managers "of various types of" assets "were" defeated "in wages (no way, like, to fatten with such a weak consumer situation") - their wages were reduced from 140 (with a tail) million, right up to 30 million! I don’t even know how the heart-warmers will now live on such "beggarly pennies" .....

        About Ostap - to the point! laughing Komolov explained sensibly and truthfully, as for me! The only way out is the nationalization of ALL mining and processing enterprises, the establishment of an internal fuel price and the adoption of relevant laws to protect the domestic market from the export of finished products. And if they say that roads are veins of the economy, then fuel is its blood and it should be affordable for the domestic consumer! I ask the pseudo-liberals not to get excited and not to read mantras that this is impossible because of market relations, etc.! With your brainwashed, you still can not understand this because you do not accept Old from literate, but from lured resources!

    Gazprom is our everything!

    Energy Minister Alexander Novak proposes Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov double the share of subsidies from the budget for the transfer of cars of individuals and small businesses from gasoline to gas fuel, RBC reports citing a letter from the head of the department.
    Thus, the subsidies will not be 30%, but 60% of the cost of the refurbishment. Another 30% of the costs will be paid by Gazprom through the marketing programs of its subsidiary Gazprom Gazomotornoye Toplivo. For car owners Only 10% will be left to pay.

If in the usual areas crop failures - it means they will get in another place. For example - by cutting the rations by serfs. And forcing them to work for the gentleman another extra day ..

      Because the power in Russia rests on the huge army of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, special services and the Russian Guard. Plus the army. Unlike civilized countries, the Russian security forces with their own people will not stand on ceremony - they will have to crush them with tanks, shoot them with machine guns. And the people know this. Because it sits quietly, breathing in a tube.

In the "civilized" countries, the authorities shot at their own people no less often than in Russia. So I advise you to learn some history before telling others. And in general, you should not write on behalf of the whole people that they are sitting there somewhere and breathing somewhere.

              Do not exaggerate. In civilized countries, after people were shot and crushed, power changed to democracy, and dictators were imprisoned or they fled. In Russia, riots and revolutions were always brutally suppressed, and there was no power for that. Except in 1917. When one anti-people regime replaced another regime, even more sophisticated and bloody.

And when you write about other countries - "civilized", do you mean that our country is uncivilized and terribly barbaric? If so, then I have nothing to talk about with you. And you continue to write with aspiration about democracy and "civilized countries".

    Just because the oligarchs of the oil industry in Russia need money. Constantly. Billions, hundreds of billions a day. They are always not enough. If their appetite is curtailed, then they will go into the regime of pushing people to the Maidan. They have enough money for this. The Kremlin cannot allow this. And therefore, ordinary people always pay for the loyalty of the oil billionaires to the president.

Therefore, instead of free medicine, it’s paid, instead of free education, it’s paid, as a private trader to make profit from housing and communal services, to raise tariffs for you, why diesel fuel is spreading in the Arctic - because the money saved for repairing the tank is new locks and yachts of the oligarch, why “Winter Cherry” is on fire what is more profitable to build a shopping center from cheap combustible materials and not spend money on fire extinguishing systems, because the money not spent is saved profit.

    Well, that’s just logical. The less the slave gets. strength, the more work the employer is ready to give her. All else being equal.
    The maximum point of this dependence is a concentration camp, where the Nazis could afford to force prisoners to do completely meaningless work, since their "workers" were kept in inhuman conditions and did not even receive food in any sufficient minimum quantities, and therefore their labor cost the fascist animals virtually nothing.

      Fascist concentration camps ..... In my opinion, in Biktashev's book "We are older than our death" there is a mention of the fact that the Germans, among other inhuman medical experiments and experiments on prisoners of concentration camps, conducted such an experiment as a diet with "programmed death" ... That is, it was calculated that the prisoner, after consuming a certain amount of calories on hard work, with a certain body weight and a supply of muscle and adipose tissue, with a certain diet, must die in advance, set deadlines. Fascist doctors and selected such diets. Soviet prisoners of war, who were forced to "help" the Nazi doctors, in every possible way interfered with the course of these experiments, giving glucose injections to those who were exposed to the experiments or feeding them on the sly to "blur" the picture of the course of the experiment. The Fritzes were frantic, not understanding why nothing was working. By the way, the "programmed poverty" cultivated in our country lately reminds me of those Nazi experiments on concentration camp prisoners. However, the "digital concentration camp" is just around the corner ...

    As in the 18-19 centuries, "Russian tsars" after Peter, were Germans. And nicho, the people were happy, until the Bolsheviks muddied ....... Does gasoline rise in price? Yes, in comparison with what we had in previous centuries, this is just a trifle. Ugh at her!

    Specifically, gasoline is getting more expensive because the people have been electing the same people for 30 years who do it. And he will elect for another 200 years, because he understands that even though the President, even the General Secretary, is actually a KING! So it would simply be incomprehensible if benzus suddenly fell in price!
