The date of petrol AI-92 production prohibition in Russia that should be in force from January 1st, 2010 year was postponed again.

According to the calculation of AUTOSTAT analytical department, the volume consumption of vehicle fuel was about 75 milliard litres in 2009 year. Therewith, about 65% of this fuel was a car petrol and about 35% - is a diesel fuel that is mainly used by commercial vehicles. The specialists of AUTOSTAT agency calculated that the summary volume of income is a little bit more than 1,5 billion Roubles a year (50 milliard dollars). This indicator exceeds even the summary capacity of a whole vehicle market of Russia. It should be recalled that the Russians spent about 30 milliard dollars for new cars in 2009 year and it is expected that this figure will increase to 40 milliard dollars this year.
