Sorry, i am posting without reading much on this thread, i will do so in the next few hours, went to most petrol bunks today around south bangalore, DeveGowda Petrol Bunk,Kadirenhalli,Mysore Bank Colony,Hanumanthanagar,GandhiBazaar,Jayanagar,RV Road and so on, most of them are only offering Premium petrol and diesel. I hope they are not scamming us with regular petrol and offering the same on Premium rates.

He said " saar only 1500 Rs petrol "

Truckers strike has been called off early this morning, so expect things to come back to normal in the next 2-3 days.

The govt has agreed to provide normal diesel at retail pumps for trucks and reduce their service tax.

I filled in my tank yesterday at the IO bunk on the junction of Palace road and Cunningham road. I normally go to this bunk and things were as usual yesterday. I fill in XTraMile but Regular and Premium both were available. Did not notice any signs of shortage.

Hope Indian oil companies are not speculating a rise in fuel prices. Hoard it now and sell it when the price is increased.

Probably not, the next fuel price revision talk will not be before October - Murali Deora is reported to have told this.

I believe these oil companies are unnecessarily taking advantage of the situation, to top it all the distributors(petrol bunks) are making more money with the fuel they have in stock already. I think they might be selling us regular petrol at premium price by lying that there is only premium fuel available.

Looks like something similar is raising its ugly head all over again. This time in Hyderabad. Got a call from my friend a while back that his car has hardly much left in the tank and he could not get diesel in any bunk in the whole of madhapur, hi-tech city, jubilee hills area. He gave me an advanced warning of the sort that while returning back home if he gets stuck I may need to go for a rescue mission to tow the car back.

My car has half tank of diesel left. Damn! Will try to tank up tomorrow morning, 1st thing... Hope I get diesel tomorrow. :(

Ok, here is the followup update. Its now confirmed that across Hyderabad and Secunderabad none of the bunks have diesel. Tried all of them, regular, premium anything... nada. They all have a out of stock board hanging and are simply refusing to oblige.
