Russia informed today that it will enact a temporary ban on gasoline and diesel exports. This will be a full ban and will take effect from today (September 21, 2023). It was explained that the decision on a ban is driven by willingness to lower prices for domestic consumers in Russia. However, details are scarce at this point. It should be noted that delivery contracts are usually long-term in nature and real question is how, and whether, the ban will apply to those.
