Petrol-Diesel Price Today 3 October 2022: Petrol and diesel rates remained stable even today. According to the new rate released this morning, there is no difference in the prices. After the fall in the prices of crude oil in the international market, there has been a slight rise on Monday. Consumers have been expecting a reduction in the rate of petrol and diesel for several days, but this expectation could not be fulfilled even today.
By the way, it is a matter of relief for the consumers that there has been no increase in the rates of petrol and diesel for more than four months. Due to the stability in the rates of petrol and diesel, the government has also helped a lot in controlling inflation.
Crude oil prices rise
Crude oil prices have been fluctuating in recent days. Since the beginning of last month, the rate of crude oil has seen a significant fall. Despite the record fall in crude oil, there was no change in the prices of petrol and diesel. However, experts believe that in the coming days, the benefit of the fall in the prices of petrol and diesel can be passed on to the consumers.
In the global market, WTI was at $ 81.91 per barrel on Saturday, while the price of Brent crude oil was at $ 89.14 per barrel. Brent crude was trading at $85 per barrel on Sunday. On Monday, there was a bullish trend. With a gain of more than two dollars, TE crude rose to $ 81.76 a barrel, while Brent crude was seen at $ 87.62 a barrel.
Stability has been maintained for a long time
Earlier on May 21, the central government had cut excise duty on petrol and diesel. Excise duty on petrol was cut by Rs 8 per liter and on diesel by Rs 6 per liter. After that the prices of petrol and diesel were registered. After this step taken by the central government, the governments of Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Odisha and Kerala also cut VAT.
After this move of the government, Maharashtra and Meghalaya are the only two states where the prices have changed. Petrol and diesel prices have increased by Rs 1.5 in Meghalaya, while petrol and diesel have become cheaper in the state after the Maharashtra government reduced VAT rates. There is no change in the prices of petrol and diesel in the rest of the states. At present, the cheapest petrol and diesel is available in Port Blair. In Port Blair, petrol is available at Rs 84.10 per liter and diesel at Rs 79.74 per liter.
Despite petrol and diesel being cheaper in Maharashtra, the most expensive fuel in the metros is being sold in Mumbai itself.
