In Russia, there is a tendency in which drivers are increasingly refusing to use AI-95 gasoline in their cars. This is supported by a study conducted by the Russian Standard Bank.

Due to the need to travel a lot on their own vehicles, more and more Russians are thinking about saving. Against this background, some of them continue to abandon the Ai-95, choosing the more affordable Ai-92 brand. The conclusions were made by analysts after studying the filling of cash vouchers for purchases with cards through a mobile bank over the past summer. Subsequently, the results were compared with the results of the same period in 2019. In the summer, many traveled within the country by personal transport, due to quarantine measures due to the coronavirus. The purchase of the AI-92 increased by 60% when compared to 2019, while the sales of the AI-95 remained practically the same.
Expert Artem Deev is convinced that the current situation with gasoline reflects economic trends, RIA Novosti reports. In a pandemic, citizens strive to save on fuel, and the demand for new foreign cars is also falling in the Russian Federation.
