Low crude prices will help oil marketing companies reduce underrecoveries on sale of subsidised kerosene and LPG gas. These companies have already been earning income on petrol and diesel as Brent crude fell nearly 48 percent from June when the price was USD 115 a barrel.

The OMCs have not passed on the entire benefit to consumers as they are retaining the cushion to make up for losses which have been made on crude inventories as these companies had also purchased crude when prices were much higher- almost over USD 100 per barrel.

In Delhi, petrol will cost Rs 61.33 a litre, the lowest in 44 months, as compared to current price of Rs 63.33. The price has been cut by Rs 2.09 a litre in Mumbai to Rs 68.86. Rates differ from state to state because of varied rates of local sales tax or VAT.

Opposition parties contended that reduction in petrol and diesel prices domestically in the last six months was not commensurate with declining global crude oil prices and also questioned the justification of levying excise duty depriving consumers of their due benefit.

you guys have no clue of things to come. Monsoon is bad and draught is staring. This will increase subsidies and petrol prices, and inflation. To contain the CAD, govt will continue to control gold prices. Only demand in US can offset the India problem.

in diesel by 50 paise a month is in accordance with policy. It was the best decision ever taken by the UPA in years. It needs to be continued till prices reach market levels and then diesel can be deregulated. The hike in petrol prices may be warranted by recent increases in crude prices and so is the LPG

For that they blame the rain and coming drought or iraq reason for petrol price escalation. Before also iraq or iran and other problems all there and evey one
