New Delhi: Amid underlining supply tightness, a price cap by the G7 and the US crude stockpiles dropped more dramatically than anticipated last week, resulting in an increase in oil prices in early trade on Wednesday. While WTI crude futures jumped 35 cents, to $81.30 a barrel, Brent crude futures gained 25 cents, to $88.61 a barrel.
Despite the crude oil prices increasing in the global markets, petrol and diesel prices have remained largely stable in India as the country imports oil from Russia.
However, the price of gasoline and diesel in India has stayed largely steady since the central government cut the tax charge. The Center reduced the excise duty on gasoline by Rs 8 per litre and on diesel by Rs 6 per litre in May of this year, which resulted in the last big decrease in fuel prices.
In India, the price of gasoline and diesel is updated every midnight based on the global situation. Delhi’s current per-liter prices are Rs 96.72 for gasoline and Rs 89.62 for diesel.
