Refilled today. The price of petrol is 0.90 down from earlier and diesel, for some reason, remains untouched.

Yes, Govt has instructed OMCs not to raise diesel prices till elections.

This decision of Govt has blown into a controversy & has gone to election commission for review.

Also looking at the 5% or so drop in ATF announced today I think the drop in petrol is puny.

I think the dinosaurs are either hauled up, or pensioned off. I guess RIL is making fuels to the highest specs (else they cannot export). Remember they buy the dirtiest crude from the free market.

Actually the Crude indices are only an indicator of where Diesel or petrol prices will move. Actual prices are decided on the PLatts Fortnightly average of each Fuel. So for example even if Price of CRude is going down, but if due to some reason price of Petrol only is up and the same is reflected in PLatts Arab Gulf averages then prices of petrol will go up. PLatts is a respected company that provides data on Fuel prices, supplies etc globally.

@SR71A; Agreed, but the Brent prices are still a good guide. I take ATF prices (being free of politics) as an excellent flag.

There are reports suggesting that oil marketing companies may scrap the monthly price revision of diesel.

The petroleum ministry had justified its decision to withhold the price hike of 50 paise a litre in April on grounds that losses on the sale of the fuel had fallen to less than Rs. 6 a litre and there was no need to increase rates since an expert committee headed by Kirit Parikh had suggested that the government should provide a subsidy of Rs. 6 a litre on diesel.


Good news.

Rubbish, blah blah ... The deal was 0.50 per month until losses are wiped out!

They must be really desperate. Let me repeat / add, Brent $109+, $ hardening (and expected to continue doing so), interest rate cuts in the offing to stimulate the economy, I see no logic.

Do the politicians really think that the general public is going to be swayed by minor changes in fuel prices? I think the smartest decision which the government did was to gently raise the price of diesel by 50p every month.

The public is now used to it. Earlier, the prices would be hiked by 2-3 rupees & all hell would break loose in the media & among public!

And the fuel price increase is back. The diesel prices have been increased by Rs.1.09. It is excluding the local taxes.
