It doesn't work that way. If it was like that, then why is Govt easily increases Petrol Prices, but doesn't increase diesel prices as frequently (till the recent 50 paise regular thing). The 50 paise thing was necessary because for many years now, the Govt was increasing Petrol prices as per international Oil Prices but wasn't doing the same with Diesel Prices. No party created a ruckus even when Petrol Price went to near Rs. 80. But you increase Diesel Price by Rs. 5 and every political party starts saying that it's anti-common man.

Expect raise in diesel price by 50 paise next week. Oil companies did the same last month. They decreased price of petrol and increased diesel price a week after.

Hello,

New Petrol prices in metros after third price reduction in last one month (Re. 1 on 15th April, Re 0.85 on 1st April & Rs. 2 on March 16):

Mumbai - Rs. 72.88
Chennai - Rs. 69.08
Kolkata - Rs. 73.48
Delhi - Rs. 66.09
Hyderabad - Rs. 72.14
Bangalore - Rs. 72.63

The cut in prices is possible because of stable Rupee & fall in International crude prices.

Hello Petrolheads,

Another piece of good news - Petrol Price cut by Rs. 3 from mid-night today (w.e.f. 01.05.2013).

When this the price of Petrol per liter in Metros will be as under:
Delhi - Rs. 63.29
Mumbai - Rs. 69.73
Kolkatta - Rs. 70.35
Chennai - Rs. 65.90

The reason - same - reduction in International crude prices & improving Dollar - Rupee exchange rate.

This Rs 3 reduction really feels good specially because the prices have entered back into the 60s

Maybe for you.
Thanks to the high VAT in Punjab,
It still costs almost 71/- a litre here.

A round trip to Delhi doesn't cost a lot from here(300 Km), if you can tank up in Delhi!!

Now lets just hope that this is the beginning of the correction phase.

But why don't these reflect as much in the premium fuels(not higher octane, just additives ones)?

Petrol prices are nearing diesel ones or is the other way round?

By midnight all petrol cars and bikes will have a full tank with a grin on their faces.

It could be due to the Supply v/s Demand theory. Not many ones go for the additive ones or the high octane fuel so the fuel pump operators hardly stock them. All that sells is unleaded petrol so the price is played around here as the demand is higher.

Hope I am correct.

Cheers,
Anurag.

Awesome! Let the turbo charged petrol brigade grow!

It is roughly 51.2 for Diesel and 64.8 for Petrol here in Kerala.

Edit: Saw in a post that Petrol is now cheaper than Diesel in Goa. The Dinosaurs clearly don't like Honda!

I dont think this is true? Check the difference between UL & Premium petrol.. it remains constant. Means prices are moving n sync.

Good to see Petrol prices are sliding. Hope it sliding further and settle at somewhat sensible level.

By the way is still Oil marketing companies selling branded petrol..? I thought they have already discontinued them due to lack of customer interest.
