Russia's premier has signed a resolution to keep in force a high export duty for gasoline until July in a bid to stabilize domestic prices, the government website said on Saturday.
The government raised export gasoline duties from May 1 amidst domestic price hikes and gasoline deficit as a temporary measure.
The export duty will be $415.8 per metric ton from June 1 until July.
Export duty on crude exports will be raised from $453.7 to $462.1 per metric ton. Privileged export duty on crude will be $217.5.
Export duty on light oil products will be $309.6 and for heavy oil products $215.8 per metric ton, the resolution said.
