KYIV, Nov 13 - Retail prices for gasoline in Ukraine would increase by UAH 1 per liter due to the growth of global prices and currency instability, Director of the A-95 consulting group Serhiy Kuyun has said.
"The reason for the growth is the world market, as well as currency instability, the prices for early November were very high, for example, they reached $627 for petrol, which is $ 70, or more than 10% higher than October figures ($557 per ton on average). Diesel oil November prices are higher than October's by $25 ($534 per ton). In equivalent, this is more than 1.5 UAH per liter of petrol and 70 kopecks per liter for diesel fuel. That is why petrol prices were the first to respond to the upswing of world prices," he told Interfax-Ukraine.
