Default Shell is cheaper

Like already mentioned, Shell Super ( which is Shell's own premium fuel- one attendent told me its also got additives for smoother engine ) is cheaper than the premium fuels of PSU bunks which cost about 61.XX.
So, for those who always fill premium fuels, shell works out cheaper.

Any chance of it reducing further? :-)

No further reduction at shell pumps. @Bangy it costs 59.95
Yes oil companies are getting a profit as mentioned but they are deferring the reduction on a silly excuse of "covering up the already incurred losses"!!!!

Now that petrol prices have been cut, Shell cost difference for petrol will be quite high. Wonder what you regular Shellers will do?

why not; look at the kind of taxes we have on fuel; in Maharashtra itself you can see the diff in fuelling in Mumbai & Thane; infact when i tanked up in a BP pump between Satara and Pune I was shocked to see the board stating 53 change where as in Bangalore at BP pumps I pay 56.88
