Deep,

Don't lose heart yet.. This is only an 'interim measure' before they discussion and take decisions on more possible cuts. I quote from Rediff below:

Quote:
The government on Friday cut the prices of petrol and diesel by Rs 5 and Rs 2 a litre, respectively, as an interim measure while watching the international prices before effecting more cuts.

As an interim measure, the government has decided to cut the prices with effect from midnight, Petroleum Minister Murli Deora said in Mumbai.
I hope they govt will budge and announce about 2-3 more rupees cut, if not another 5... Being a potential petrol car buyer before end of Dec, this is good news to me

Default Petrol price cut by Rs 5, diesel by Rs 2

India govt. has cut Petrol price by Rs 5, and Diesel price by Rs 2.

Initial implications were that Petrol price may be cut by Rs 10, and Diesel price may be cut by Rs 3. Do you think this cut is OK?
