In Mumbai, one litre of petrol and diesel cost Rs 109.98 and Rs 94.14, respectively

Fuel prices across the country continue their steady streak on Tuesday. Prices of petrol and diesel have been stable since the central government reduced the excise duty in November 2021. Public sector oil marketing companies (OMCs) revise the fuel prices daily in accordance with the benchmark of international price and foreign exchange rates. For more than two months now, OMCs have neither raised nor reduced petrol and diesel rates, while international oil prices remain volatile. Retail prices of petrol, diesel differ from state to state on account of local taxes like Value-Added Tax (VAT), and freight charges. On December 1, 2021, the Delhi government had reduced the VAT on petrol from 30% to 19.40%.

In the national capital, petrol retails at Rs 95.41 per litre while diesel is priced at Rs 86.67 per litre. In Mumbai, one litre of petrol and diesel cost Rs 109.98 and Rs 94.14, respectively. Meanwhile, in Kolkata, the retail price of one litre of petrol is Rs 104.67, while one litre of diesel costs Rs 89.79.

Global fuel prices are also governed by international crude oil prices. According to Reuters, Brent crude futures rose 85 cents, or 1%, to $87.33 a barrel on Tuesday after earlier hitting a peak of $87.55. The US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures jumped $1.13, or 1.4% to a more than two-month high of $84.95 a barrel.
