Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s big statement about the rising prices of petrol and diesel is coming out. He said, “This is a regrettable issue and no answer other than a reduction in prices can satisfy the people. Both the Center and the state should talk to bring down the retail fuel price to a reasonable level for consumers.” In Chennai, the Finance Minister said that the production estimates that the OPEC countries had projected are also likely to come down which is again raising concerns. The government is not in control of the price of oil. It has been technically freed. Oil companies import, refine and sell crude oil.

Today, Union Minister Ashwani Kumar Choubey has also said that the price of petrol and diesel determines the global market, we have reduced the price from time to time to reduce inflation. The Government of India is determined to reduce their prices. At the same time, the opposition is attacking the central government over the rising price of petrol and diesel. On the rise in petrol-diesel prices, AAP leader Raghav Chadha says, “The way the spokesperson Bharatiya Janata Party is looting this country, the way it is breaking the back of poor people and robbing people.” I don’t think any government would have done this in the history of this country. ”

Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, who has charged the highest VAT on fuel, has attributed the economic policies of the Modi government to the rising prices of petrol and diesel. At the same time, former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav attacked the government and said, “When petrol-diesel becomes expensive, inflation increases at the same time. By increasing inflation, they put the burden on the entire middle class, poor, farmers, youth. The BJP has caused so much inflation that the poor are thinking that what should we save … what are they eating? And they are arguing that this will make the country. ”

This is how the rate of petrol and diesel increases

After adding excise duty, dealer commission and other things to the price of petrol and diesel, its price almost doubles. If excluding the excise duty of the Central Government and the VAT of the State Governments, then the rate of diesel and petrol would be around 27 rupees a liter, but both the Central or the State Government, can not remove the tax at any cost. Because a large part of the revenue comes from here. This money leads to growth.

Prices are fixed every morning

In fact, the prices of petrol and diesel change daily depending on the price of crude in the international market along with the foreign exchange rates. Oil marketing companies fix petrol and diesel rates daily after reviewing prices. Indian Oil, Bharat Petroleum and Hindustan Petroleum revise petrol and diesel rates at 6 am daily.
