Experts predict a sharp jump in prices in the near future.
The first category of goods raised in price will be petroleum products. At the end of February, Vladimir Putin signed a decree according to which from April 1, 2016 excise rates on gasoline (by 2 rubles per liter) and diesel fuel (by 1 ruble / liter) will increase.
Earlier, some distributors of foreign goods warned retailers in writing about an increase in selling prices for specific products. Chocolate bars (Mars, Snickers, Milky Way, etc.) and candies from the Korkunov factory will go up in price by about 20%.
Also, experts predict an increase in the cost of dairy products by 5% due to a shortage of raw materials.
In addition, a seasonal increase in prices for vegetable products is expected in March, this time exacerbated by the January fall in the ruble exchange rate.
