The Russian government has raised export taxes in crude oil and crude oil products from $25.1 to $33.8 per ton. The new rate comes into force on October 1, 2003, the Government Information Department reported.

Exports taxes on carbon oil, toluene, xylene, propane, butane, ethylene and other liquid gases will be increased from $22.6 to $30.4 per ton.
