Moscow crude oil refinery, which is amongst Russia largest top ten refineries, refined totally 4.261 mln tons in January-June 2004. In the whole, Russia has been preserves stable crude oil refinery output, despite growth in its extracting. It is mainly due to that the majority of oil is exported, and the second reason of flat rate is that crude oil is distributed uneven: largest oil refineries function at the highest of their capacity, when supplying their own refineries, while all the other refineries are slackening. As per oil products breakdown, conclusions are obvious. Economical growth caused increase of purchasing cars by customers. And despite of significant growth of price for gasoline (just in June customer prices in Russia rose 6.6 per cent), it has still been in demand, which basically causes increase of output of high-octane gasoline.
