Amid Continuing Fall in Crude Oil Price, Check Gasoline and Diesel Rates

There is a continuous decline in the price of crude oil on the international market. For a month and a half, the ups and downs in the price of crude have continued.

In the midst of all this, gasoline-diesel prices remained at the same level for about three and a half months. With the exception of Maharashtra and Meghalaya, the price of oil in all other states was changed three and a half months ago. At that time, the central government had announced the reduction of excise duties on the price of oil.

In Meghalaya, the price of petrol and diesel had increased by Rs 1.5 per liter over the past day. VAT on petroleum was reduced after the formation of Shinde government in Maharashtra. At that time, petrol became cheaper by Rs 5 and diesel by Rs 3 in Maharashtra. Crude Oil is falling and trading below USD 90 per barrel. On Monday morning, the price of WTI crude reached $88.29 per barrel. By contrast, Brent crude fell to $94.60 a barrel.

Earlier on May 22, the Modi government reduced excise duties. After this government decision, petrol became cheaper by Rs 8 and diesel by Rs 6. Soon after, some state governments also reduced VAT.
