The study of velocity and velocity-difference distributions in Burger turbulence was presented. The one-dimensional Burgers equation randomly stirred at large scales by a Gaussian short-time correlated force was considered. The velocity and velocity-difference probability density functions (PDF) were obtained using the method of dissipative anomalies. It was demonstrated that the method of dissipative anomalies can be generated for turbulence with pressure and can be applicable in more than one dimension.
