What worries the Fuel Union so much again

Which is more expensive - gasoline or oil



Over the decades of work in the industry, there has never been a chance to see the real collapse of any of the "kings of gas stations". No, bankruptcy is welcome. Bursting trusts, failed cartel agreements - as much as you like.

At the same time, over the years of a “free” (precisely in quotation marks) market economy, the expense of closed gas stations, even brand new ones, and even in the most profitable places, that is, on highways, generally went to thousands, or even tens of thousands. Nevertheless, the gasoline business has been and remains one of the most profitable.

And fuel prices in Russia are growing, no matter what, and are falling only in rare cases, when they do not keep up with the suddenly sharply fallen ruble. But even then they decrease exclusively in dollar terms.

In rubles, the Russian gasoline prices over the past three decades, if they have decreased by any serious percentage and a respectable time, then this should be noted no less than the Nobel Prize. Or at least a premium from the Fuel Union, which already warns about a possible shortage of fuel with enviable regularity (Barrel of oil and liter of gasoline).

But we do not need to convince anyone that oil prices are in full openwork now. And horror stories about the Indian strain SARS-CoV-2 or new portions of oil on the market (for example, from Iran) can be misleading. The forecasts here are also quite optimistic, according to the principle that the patient is more likely to be alive than at least dying.

However, inside Russia, the situation not with oil, but with gasoline, in May 2021, quite as expected, became quite complicated. The so-called spring field work began. And the people, having received a week and a half of the weekend, rushed to their dachas and, of course, to their personal cars.

Queues at gas stations immediately became almost the norm. As well as the jump in prices to the mark of 50 rubles per liter of AI-95. In half of the regions where the simple 92nd is much more popular, it is this more demanding 50th brand that has gone off scale in price for fifty dollars. And by all indications, forever.

The Ministry of Energy described the situation in its own way, although it was almost the first time that Deputy Minister Pavel Sorokin commented on it (pictured):

“The current level fully meets the emerging demand. At the same time, the seasonal growth in demand in exchange trading before the summer start of holidays creates additional exchange demand for AI-92 gasoline and, in particular, AI-95, the demand for which is growing every year ”.

Note - "annually." Although in fact, almost every day. And it seems that one can understand the anxiety of the head of the Russian Fuel Union (RTS) Yevgeny Arkusha, who, in a letter to Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak, declares that

"The measures taken by the government to stabilize the gasoline market are not enough, there is a risk of a fuel shortage in the summer."

What's more - taxes or fees



So, again, everything is as usual - oil has risen in price, and from the fuel union the RTS is almost ultimately scared by the shortage of gasoline in Russia. Given that the demand from aviation on kerosene fell just catastrophically and the freed up processing capacity should have excluded even a hint of any deficit.

But the deficit has already happened. And the first measures against it, as well as against the "possible", but in fact - already happened price increases, seem to have been taken. Well, at least it was given to understand that shutting off the gasoline export tap for three months at once is quite possible.

However, what will it give - another delay in the price jump? And this jump can then be translated into a creeping overcoming of the next "psychologically important marks and consolidation at new stable price lines"? These are words from one of the previous letters from RTS to the Ministry of Energy.

Now RTS fears something else - "further growth of wholesale prices or the emergence of a surrogate to replace the missing volumes." Recognition of the very fact of the possibility of pouring a surrogate into our tanks from the lips of the head of the RTS is not the most, let's put it mildly, a good sign.

We thought that surrogates were a thing of the past, and that they were done with forever, but now proposals and conclusions are more important. In the RTS, all of a sudden, in general, they stopped repeating about difficulties with calculations for fuel, when excise taxes, duties and various kinds of damper mechanisms change regularly (There is nothing more expensive than cheap gasoline).

Now everything is somehow simpler - first of all, the Fuel Union proposes to increase the total volume of fuel production in the Russian Federation, as if it were being done by magic. But how can the idea of ​​export delimitation be linked to this? And right before October 1 - it's not easy to understand.

Now is the time to play with numbers. And to begin with, recall that at the moment the fuel reserves in the country have exceeded 1,7 million tons. With a daily consumption of 67 thousand tons of AI-92 and 40 thousand tons of AI-95, as well as taking into account diesel and something else, it will be enough for at least a week and a half.

But these are only stocks, which are replenished every day. And if production is increased, then there will not be enough reserve capacities. True, another “interesting” idea of ​​the RTS can help - to increase the standard for the minimum volume of fuel sales on the stock exchange up to 15% at once.

At the same time, exchange prices for AI-92 gasoline since mid-December, when their active growth began, increased by 20,8%, AI-95 - by 27,5%. Should we even believe that retail prices will be able to keep from the same growth for a long time?

Against the background of "almost panic", which simply emanates from the RTS letter to the Ministry of Energy, the demonstrative calmness of the already mentioned Deputy Minister Pavel Sorokin cannot but rejoice. He, as if on a piece of paper, recalled that the Ministry of Energy is conducting daily monitoring of the situation with prices and satisfaction of demand in the domestic motor fuel market.

And what else can they do there, in the Ministry of Energy? If only with OPEC, the organization of oil exporting countries, to agree on Russian gasoline? With oil, is it not bad at all?

Who is to blame - OPEC or tourists


Previously, our fuel department would certainly have blamed all its sins on our OPEC colleagues (How many pluses does OPEC have in stock??). Now it won't work. Too many people in our time have already understood too much. For example, the fact that gasoline will rise in price in our country - either with cheap or expensive oil. And even OPEC cannot do anything about it.

So, for a start, it would be nice to remind the relevant ministry, and at the same time to the public, who would like to understand the reasons for queues at gas stations, leapfrog with price tags, and about the problems of "unfortunate refuelers". And first of all - about the low margin.

Although it is clear even to non-specialists that a low margin with good turnovers is a much more sure guarantee of good profits than a high margin with turnovers closer to zero. So, in the already mentioned letter of the RTS it is said about the very "margin profitability of the retail business."

Mr. Arkusha has no doubts that "the minimum level required to pay taxes and reimburse operating costs should be 10-12% of the retail price." In 2021, this figure was an order of magnitude lower, which for gas stations, judging by the tone of the letter in the Ministry of Energy, is like death.

However, I'm sorry, but 10-12% is a bit too much. So much so that it is just right to remember old Marx. And if any of the "kings of gas stations" in the era of a pandemic with such a margin and went bankrupt, it is more likely because of the fall in demand, when you do not pick up what margin, but there is still nothing to earn.

It is understandable when gasoline lobbyists are demanding "adoption to lower wholesale fuel prices." It is clear that they are eager to ensure that the business breaks even. But it is not entirely clear (more precisely, it is completely incomprehensible) how this will help "keep prices within the inflation and in retail"?

With a rush of demand, the margin will climb up, and the rising gasoline price will affect inflation, especially since it is now becoming more and more difficult to cope with it. Isn't that why in the letter to RTS suddenly there is such an unconventional argument for our realities, when, it turns out, whoever you think is to blame are tourists:

“Against the background of restrictions on recreation abroad, measures taken by the Russian government to stimulate the development of domestic tourism, the coming vacation period will lead to an even greater growth in demand, which, according to our estimates, may grow by another 10–20%. Consumption growth is especially evident for AI-95 gasoline ”.

And what, in fact, is bad in the growth of demand?

After all, Russia does have opportunities to increase production volumes, according to the RTS?

      I don’t understand at all why the oil industry and other important industries are in private hands? Tales about the fact that a state like pumping oil worse than a highly efficient owner - from the category of topics about galoshes and the Soviet Union. Exclusively on the storyteller's bad conscience. Moreover, even in the capital countries there are a lot of state oil companies that are doing very well.

      So - there is only one explanation - we are simply and stupidly robbed. That's all. Glory to the great Putin, 20 years old type of lifting us from our knees!

        Here I completely agree with you! All natural monopolies are in the hands of the state!

        Gas stations, like stations, can be private, but with a clear percentage of profit. Procurement state price + 15%, for example. And the state price with about the same + 15% to the cost price - but in the form of excise tax ...

        And remove the transport tax. All excise taxes and taxes should be invested in state gasoline. If the cars are standing still and do not drive, then they do not spoil the roads, and they do not participate in the economy: the tax base is not created, the VAT has already been paid when buying a vehicle ... But they will not go without fuel anyway.

        Plan privatization of state property for 2017-2019, only by a quarter, according to the report of the Accounts Chamber, devoted to the analysis of the implementation of the privatization plan. This is a historically low figure, the department emphasizes.
        With regard to the privatization of state shares in joint stock companies and LLC the plan was fulfilled by 25% (of the number of packages planned for sale). So of nine blocks of shares of the largest companies planned for privatization were realized only one - 100% in the Kristall Production Association, the largest diamond producer in Russia. However, here, too, a state-owned company (ALROSA. - RBC) became the owner of the enterprise, that is, the transaction did not actually lead to a reduction in the state's share in the economy, the report says. According to the auditors, the plan for the corporatization of federal state unitary enterprises (FSUE) was fulfilled by 22%, for the sale of other state property - by 23%.
        Reasons for inefficiency
        Among the reasons for the weak results in the implementation of the privatization plan, the Accounts Chamber calls a "formal approach" to its preparation. For example, from 253 FSUEs included in the plan, the privatization of 121 enterprises was impossible for various reasons: was limited by law, enterprises were in the process of liquidation, bankruptcy or did not conduct business activities.

      Such prices and queues are, in fact, hidden sabotage without the word "hidden"))
      The revenue of a modern gas station depends on gasoline only half, the second half is shops, snack bars and other services (car washes, tire changers, etc., etc.). Therefore, raising prices is a rare disgusting thing, not to mention the fact that there are a little more than 27000 gas stations in Russia. For a country like Russia, both in terms of territory and population, this is practically nothing and it seems that the matter is not in the profitability of the business, but in non-competitive methods of struggle in the market))
      For comparison, there are about 9000 gas stations in Ukraine, but there are 5 times less cars there. And one cannot say that gas stations there are bent, some are bad, but this is already the cost of the law enforcement system, and not the work of the market.
      It is easy to calculate that the growth of gas stations in Russia by 10-15 thousand will not ruin the market, but the competitiveness of the service will increase and there will be fewer queues.

          Gasoline prices are lower in countries that produce hundreds of times less oil. Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Egypt, BV countries.
          But in our country, even when the price is reduced, the state, instead of forcing producers to reduce the price, banally prohibits the import of cheap gasoline.

          How can entrepreneurs be forced to lower prices?

          It is popular to explain that until gasoline is, for example, 20 each - not a single bastard will take out a ton of fuels and lubricants outside the cordon .. They will try to arrange a deficit - send a prosecutor with a detachment of riot police ..

              I don’t understand something - are you interested in foreign sales markets, bourgeois incomes, or cheap gasoline for your country? Once again, no one will forbid them to sell any volumes for the cordon at any price, while in the Motherland there is plenty of fuel and lubricants and at an affordable price.

                  You are engaged in verbiage. Understanding perfectly well that the high incomes of the oil bourgeoisie from inflated domestic prices - turn into gigantic losses for the country's economy in all other areas. Expensive fuels and lubricants - this is a verdict for very, very many, not to mention people.

              You can also refer to the experience of the early USSR. When the tax was levied from peasants in kind. And the received grain - the state used to intervene on the market, if producers - began to scramble and charge prices. Who's stopping you from repeating?

    our gasoline will rise in price - either with cheap or expensive oil.
    The cost of gasoline in Russia is not the cost of oil, and only to a small extent depends on oil. The oil product in the final price of gasoline at filling stations "weighs" no more than 7%. That is, the cost of oil on the world and domestic markets is nothing in the price tag of gasoline at filling stations. The numbers that we see in the check after refueling are influenced by several factors, and here is their ratio (according to the Fuel Union of Russia).
    What makes up the price tag for fuel at a gas station:

    Production cost
    7%
    Mineral extraction tax
    -30,59%
    Excise
    -20,28%
    VAT
    -18,27%
    Processing, transportation and storage
    -9,46%
    Gas station costs
    7%
    Wholesale profit
    -15,33%

    As you can see, 69,14% of the cost of gasoline consists of taxes only.

      When the day before yesterday the price tag for gasoline increased by 3 kopecks, yesterday - by 2 kopecks, and today by a penny, what changes have occurred in the cost of gasoline? Has the cost price, tax, excise, VAT, processing, gas station or wholesale profit increased? This is where we have to dance, and I don’t really believe that big heads in the government do not own analytics.

    et Mishustin spoke recently ...

    They say they are all beautiful ... and they always have the guilty ones. Only they are embarrassed to voice their names .. because they themselves are in the same team .. In general, it is absurd .. to talk and look for appointing the guilty when you yourself are the second person in the country .. So do what if your work was visible to the people .. that one talker, that the other ..


    You can summarize the results of the activities of the Mishustin government for 1,5 years of his work (https://www.gazeta.ru/politics/2021/01/16_a_13443236.shtml):

    1. Reform of the state apparatus is an extremely "important" achievement, a cornerstone.
    2. Reform of development institutions - see the answer above ...
    3. Support for citizens and businesses against the backdrop of a pandemic - no comment, small business "appreciated" the support
    4. Provision of mortgage loans - the construction site was supported "in such a way" that the prices for the "primary" flew into space.
    5. Regulation of food prices - no matter how I go to the store, I remember everything "regulator" with the word
    6. Transition to digital - there is no reduction in workflow, there is more routine, but of course it is "different"
    7. Support for the regions - "10 regions will receive 100 billion rubles", ie 10 billion per region. For example, the cost of 1 kindergarten is about 1 billion rubles ...

    This is a shame, the genocide of the population. In an oil-producing country, in the leading positions, there is such a mess with the prices of gasoline. When will they get drunk ?! Petrol prices hit everyone, even in the cradle. In the store there is always an excuse - delivery is becoming more expensive. what hi

    So, again, everything is as usual - oil has risen in price, and from the fuel union the RTS is almost ultimately scared by the shortage of gasoline in Russia. Given that the demand from aviation for kerosene fell simply catastrophically, and the freed up processing capacity should have excluded even a hint of any shortage.
