The analysis is made in order to iden-tify the factors influencing the formation of the medium term price changes.

The following variables were chosen for the econometric models: M2 cash rate, dollar-to-ruble ratio rate, and price rate in the energy production sphere. The seasonality and the 1998 economic crisis influence upon the price changes were analyzed.
