How are Diesel Prices Revised in Lucknow?

In Lucknow, the daily revision system is currently being practiced by all state-run oil marketing companies such as Indian Oil, Shell Oil, Hindustan Petroleum and Bharat Petroleum, who have left the 15-year old practice of revising fuel prices twice a month. The daily revision is also called dynamic fuel pricing. The new practice is in use since 16 June 2017.

As per the new system, all diesel bunks whether automated or non-automated will revise the rate of diesel at 06:00 a.m. every day. Dynamic fuel pricing will make sure that the advantage of even the lowest change in overseas crude oil rates can be immediately transmitted to end consumers and dealers. Furthermore, the initiative is said to eliminate big jumps in prices.

How are Diesel Prices in Lucknow Assessed?

The components of the price structure of diesel in Lucknow can be grouped into three categories, which include 1) the cost of production and supplying diesel to end users, 2) the operating expenses of retail outlets and 3) state and central levies. The cost of production includes distribution, refining, processing and procurement expenses such as cost of crude oil, refinery transfer price, distribution and marketing expenses.

Retail outlets of diesel can be operated and owned by refinery themselves or by independent entities that buy diesel from distributors or refineries. Operating expenses of retail outlets rely on several considerations such as local market conditions, the location of retail outlets and the marketing strategy of retail station owners.

Diesel is taxed by both the central and state governments. Over the last three years, the central excise duty on diesel increased by more than 4 times to Rs.17.33 per litre from Rs.3.56 per litre. The state VAT levied on diesel will differ from one state to another. There is no fixed VAT on diesel in Uttar Pradesh since the state government delinked diesel rate variations to protect its revenue share at a constant rate.

In a nutshell, the retail price of diesel in the city of Lucknow replicates the expenses incurred by each division of supply chain comprising distributors, diesel bunk owners, marketers and refiners. The relative portion of the various elements in the retail pump price of diesel fluctuates with time and also fluctuates across different localities.

What are the Influencers of Diesel Prices in Lucknow?

Diesel prices in Lucknow are impacted by the following factors:

  • Supply and demand of crude oil

The global demand and supply of crude oil influence the cost of crude oil, which is one of the most important elements in the final price of diesel. Due to interruptions in crude oil supply, the last few years witnessed an unparalleled hike in crude oil prices globally.

  • Disparities in demand and supply

Diesel is basically a transportation fuel. Glitches at refineries or insufficient and delayed imports lead to unanticipated interruptions in the supply of diesel. The gap between the demand and supply of the fuel leads to variations in retail selling prices.

  • Seasonal variations

Diesel prices will fall a bit during the summer, increase during the fall and surge during early spring. As the consumption of gasoline increases during the summer, the demand for diesel dips. The lower the demand for diesel, the lower will be the price.

  • Geographical variations

Diesel outlets that are farthest from distribution and refinery terminals have more diesel prices to account for the expenses incurred in shipping the fuel. Local market situations such as traffic patterns, the number of retail diesel bunks or outlets and state fees affect the retail selling of diesel.

  • VAT and the Central Excise Duty

The state VAT on diesel is fixed by state governments whereas the central excise duty is fixed by the central government. Any variations in these two tax components will equally impact the retail selling price of diesel.

  • Exchange Rate

The central bank of India determines the value of the USD against the local currency. The exchange rate is impacted by many factors such as interest rates, inflation rates, import and export patterns and the overall public debt of India and the US. The cost of crude oil will vary based on the exchange rate.

GST and Diesel Prices in Lucknow

The Goods and Services Tax (GST) is a value-added tax imposed on all types of goods and services sold for indigenous consumption. GST is paid by end consumers, but it is paid by merchandisers to the government. In effect, GST is a major source of revenue for the government. GST has no impact on diesel prices in Lucknow since diesel has not been brought under the regime of GST. If GST is imposed on diesel, the current diesel price in Lucknow slashes by 20-30%.

  • Petrol Being Sold at Rs.100 per litre in Madhya Pradesh

There are over 3,200 petrol pumps in the state of and the number is far too low to cater to the 70 million people that the state holds. This is leading to petrol being sold at Rs.100 to Rs.110 per litre in some rural and tourist regions of the state.

    The central government had announced a Rs.2.50 per litre drop in fuel prices two weeks ago, however, that has failed to have little effect on conditions in the state. And the continuous rises are beginning to burn a hole in the common man’s pocket.

    When asked, a person from a village said that, he buys fuel for Rs.100 per litre from a local seller, because the nearest fuel pump for him is close to 17 km away. The fuel that some people here buy is stored in a drum and is being sold at a higher premium, despite adding a number of additives such as kerosene and the like.
