Gas - for motors

LOST PROPANE …

Yuri NECHETOV

Owners of vehicles equipped with liquefied petroleum gas (CIS) power supply systems were not happy for long. The summer-autumn abundance and cheapness for winter gave way to long-forgotten hours-long queues at gas "gas stations" and rapidly rising prices. In some places, the cost of gas fuel was equal to gasoline. What is the matter?

The first reason is on the surface: supply, as usual, does not keep pace with sharply increased demand. For example, in December 1999 alone, Moscow alone required 100 thousand tons of the CIS, while the main and, until recently, only supplier, the Moscow Oil Refinery, provides only 65 thousand tons per month. But in the capital, the authorities even keep the price low, in other regions it is in a hurry for demand.
