Petrol-Diesel Price Today: Crores of people in the country reach petrol pumps daily to get petrol and diesel and such people are interested in knowing the rate of petrol and diesel. The big information for such people is that no change has been made in the rates of petrol and diesel even today.
Government oil companies have released new rates of petrol and diesel this morning and according to this, the phase of stability in prices is going on. However, due to the sharp fall in crude oil prices, it is being expected that the rate will come down. All eyes are on the oil companies to take a quick decision in this regard.
Why was there expectation of reduction in rates
Experts’ expectation of reduction in petrol and diesel rates is not sudden. Actually, there is a solid reason behind this expectation. Since the beginning of September, crude oil prices in the global market have fallen drastically. Experts believe that the prices may fall further in the coming days. On Friday, there was a sharp fall in crude oil and the price of WTI crude reached $ 85.05 per barrel. At the same time, Brent crude was seen at $ 90.85 per barrel. Brent crude has been trending around $91 per barrel since Saturday.
Experts believe that crude oil prices may fall to $ 85 per barrel in the future. For this reason, the rate of petrol and diesel is expected to fall. On the other hand, Petroleum Minister Hardeep Singh Puri says that the oil companies will not make petrol and diesel cheaper at present to recover from the losses.
Stability remains except in two states
Petrol and diesel rates have remained stable since the third week of May. On May 21, the central government had removed the excise duty on petrol and diesel. After that VAT rates were also reduced in many states. Due to this, the rates of petrol and diesel had come down significantly. After that there has been no change in the prices of petrol and diesel in all the states except Maharashtra and Meghalaya.
Meanwhile, after the fall in crude oil prices in the global market, the government has reduced windfall tax on crude oil produced in the country. Along with this, the duty on the export of diesel and aviation fuel (ATF) has also been reduced by the government. According to information received from sources, the government has reduced windfall tax on domestically produced crude oil from Rs 13,300 per tonne to Rs 10,500 per tonne.
