^Well, the Rs. 5 difference is between the highway rate at Indian Oil pump outside city octroi limit and a Shell pump located inside city limit.
Shell 'normal' petrol @ Rs. 81.45 in Pune city limits.
BPCL 'normal' rate Rs. 78.80 inside city (December 14th)
Petrol on Mumbai Pune Expressway is Rs. 76.72 (December 25th)
Petrol at Kharadi, Pune petrol pump, IOC, is Rs. 76.45 (December 23rd)
Normal petrol in Navsari, Gujarat is Rs. 74.73 (December 27th)

No sir, there has been some correction if you look back through a longer time frame. When I shifted from a diesel car to a petrol car ( approx. June 2012 ), Petrol was retailing at Rs. 77 per litre and diesel at Rs. 44 per litre in Indore (diff of about Rs 33). Now after 18 months, Petrol is at Rs. 77 per litre but diesel is now Rs. 60 (diff. of Rs 17)

Is that the difference between Euro III and Euro IV versions, and not the octroi difference? See this for the pricing: http://www.shell.com/ind/products-se...ing-board.html

Good observation. But speculation is that, there will always be an intentional price differential of Rs. 10 to Rs. 15 going forward, between the 2 fuels.

The gap was closing faster the past year or so, with the 50 paisa increase for diesel every month. But I believe that has slowed down now. The last increase in the fuels a month or so ago, raised petrol by 50 paisa + tax while diesel was raised by 10 paisa + tax.

Otherwise car companies may not be able to justify the 1L+ premium charged on diesel cars and we'll see shift towards petrol cars again. Currently, the car companies are making good margin on diesel vehicles and they would lobby to continue to have the price differential, so that they keep their profit margins on diesel cars. Not to mention they make higher margins on diesel vehicles during servicing and on parts too.

Since this is the fuel prices thread....

I'd bought my Wagon R Duo in 2007 when LPG prices were around Rs. 25-28/ltr.

I filled up today and got a shock when I saw the price - Rs. 65.8/ltr! A week ago it was in the region of Rs 55-56/ltr.

I haven't seen any announcement regarding Auto LPG price hike - although I haven't been paying close attention to the news for the last week or so.

With even the alternative fuels going up drastically in price and no decent public transport options, to play on a movie dialogue "the power of the common man is definitely being taken for a ride".

Crude oil prices fall, interrnationally fuel becomes cheaper!

Petrol and diesel have become even more times cheaper.The strong euro exchange rate and falling crude oil prices led to the decline in prices .

^Even Rupee has become stronger. If it stays this way for some more time, I expect a price reduction in fuel prices in a week's time.

Contrary to these circumstances, I read in a regional newspaper that Diesel prices may be hiked by Rs 2/-!

Diesel prices in India is skewed due to the subsidy. Check if Diesel prices in Shell too will be revised?

Recently filled regular diesel in my ride and found it as 58.27/ liter in a HP pump in chennai city.
Another Rs. 2 will make it more than 60 bucks a litre.
The objective of reducing the difference between types of fuel seems to achieved earlier than expected.
Very soon, India may resemble Germany in terms of fuel pricing.

Just banged in 46 litres of Diesel from HP into the Yetibeast. It had done 546 kms, all in the city, with AC on and plenty of traffic light idling.
Not a bad FE of 11.86kmpl!
Rs 58.72/- per litre in Bangalore.

CNG prices may increase by as much as Rs.11 from April to "incentivise" exploration of new fields. Source . Blow after blow to alternative fuel users of the nation.

Someone talked about LPG price increase as well (perhaps on some other thread?).

So, how far behind is CNG and LPG with respect to petrol?

If the gap is less than Rs. 10, then perhaps extra cost for the kits does not make sense for most users (considering the long queues at the pumps and the less range (say 200 KMs) for typical small hatchbacks).

CNG price in Coimbatore costs Rs.63 per kg now! That's a difference of approximately 10-12 Rs from petrol.
The price variation between CNG and petrol has virtually been knocked off. What remains is just the perception! Which I feel will also evaporate soon!
