    Computation of Petrol Price in Assam

    Petrol price is computed by fuel companies. The computation is very simple. Fuel companies will add the expenses that are incurred at every phase. Major cost aspects include costs of crude oil, the overheads incurred by oil marketing companies, excise duty or central taxes, Value-added Tax (VAT) or state taxes, commission for fuel dealers, etc.

    As on 03 June 2018, the cost of a litre of crude oil was Rs.32.98; excise duty on petrol per litre was Rs.19.48; Value-added Tax on petrol per litre was 30.80%; the total amount of the expenses spent by OMCs was Rs.5.40 a litre; and the commission charged by fuel dealers was Rs.3.63 a litre.

    Factors Affecting Petrol Price in Assam

    • Exchange rate: Crude oil is vastly borrowed by India from other markets. So, the exchange rate has an important role to play. If the conversion rate of the USD against the Indian currency weakens, crude oil costs will accelerate. On the other hand, if the conversion rate of the USD against the INR strengthens, crude oil rates will diminish. Finally, fuel prices are impacted in domestic markets.
    • Taxes: VAT and excise duty are two types of taxes, which are domestically controlled. States will impose VAT. Excise duty is collected by the Central Government. Any ups and downs in taxes will have a direct impact. For instance, if there is a cut in excise duty today, tomorrow’s petrol price in Assam will be adjusted accordingly. If the State Government of Assam announces a cut in VAT, fuel companies have to reset fuel rates.
    • Crude oil costs: The higher the demand for crude oil, the higher will be the cost of crude oil. The lower the demand for crude oil, the lower will be the cost of unrefined oil. Political scenarios, weather conditions and production cuts will impact the pricing and supply of unrefined oil.

    GST vs Petrol Price in Assam

    Goods and Services Tax (GST) has not been imposed on petrol and petroleum sub-products. Therefore, it does not affect the pricing of petrol and diesel. The revenue sources for states and the Central Government are negatively impacted when petrol is brought under the GST mechanism. Opposition party leaders have questioned the government for not bringing petrol and diesel under GST. In fact, the government is now evaluating several options to tax petrol at GST rates. The final decision has to be taken by the concerned authorities.

    • Margins of synthetic textile manufactures is likely to be increased by falling crude oil costs

      The profit margin of synthetic manufacturers is likely to be increased by a sharp downfall in the rate of petroleum per barrel in the first quarter of the calendar year 2019. Since March, the price of Brent crude oil has downfallen by 23%. To stabilise at this year’s low about $60 a barrel, Brent fell by 37% from its peak. Market experts entrust that the volatility has interrupted the business strategy of the makers of synthetic textile. Over the last two quarter of the present financial year, the flexibility in crude oil has affected the financial results of the manufacturer of synthetic. Indo Rama has produced a net loss of Rs.326.20 million on an overall income of Rs.3,955.9 million in the second quarter this fiscal year. Madan Sabnavis, Chief Economist at Care Rating, said, ‘’Over the last two months, the price of crude oil has been increasing steadily and also the Indian rupee has been devaluating versus the overseas currency. Both factors will directly influence fuel prices. Crude oil or petroleum is a prime raw material required for the manufacturer of synthetic. The pricing of crude oil also influence fabric move, yarn and man-made fibre.

    • Vandana Hari States That Rising Oil Prices Is Mainly Due To The Break In Trade Wars

      In an interview with ET Now, the founder and CEO of Vanda Insights, Vandana Hari, stated that the Opec ministers will be meeting soon and there will be another meeting with non-Opec countries and they are expecting to cut production from the current levels. However, the percentage of the cut is still not known and is much speculated. The price of oil fell from $85 to $58 and now it is 5% higher. The cut in the production of oil will play a crucial role in determining whether crude oil prices will bounce back or not. She further stated that the reason for the recent bounce in the equity market across all commodities not just oil was mainly due to the ongoing China- U.S trade war. The rising tide is back because of the trade war resite.

    • OMCs, Aviation, and Paint Industries See Stocks Rise as Crude Prices fall

      Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs), paint, and aviation industries are all reliant on oil and hence when crude oil prices were rising, the companies’ stock values dropped. As crude oil prices have dropped by 20% in the recent weeks, stocks for the aforementioned companies have risen as much as 13% in the November derivatives data.

      Some of the leading firms in the aviation and oil industries has seen significant rise in their stock values. Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited, BPCL, one of the state owned OMC has seen its stock prices rise by 7.17% in November as crude oil prices have dropped. This is because the fear over the sharing of oil price burden by these companies have dropped. Back in October, BPCL and other OMCs were asked to subsidise fuel by Rs.1 while the central government did the same by Rs.1.5 per litre of fuel.

      Jet Airways, on the other hand, saw its stock prices rise by 12.34% while HPCL recorded a 6.58% increase during November. Asian Paints and InterGlobe Aviation are the other two gainers over the last few months, which have seen their stock value for November rise by 7.96% and 12.98% respectively.

    • Petrol is Cheaper Than Diesel in Odisha

      For the first time in Odisha, petrol became cheaper than diesel today. Even as oil companies revised fuel prices based on the dynamic fuel pricing mechanism, diesel prices in Bhubaneshwar are 12 paise more than that of petrol. Diesel is being sold at Rs.80.69 a litre and petrol is available at Rs.80.57 per litre. Odisha charges a uniform Value Added Tax (VAT) of 26% on both petrol and diesel, unlike other states where the VAT is different for petrol and diesel. The Centre had cut excise duty of Rs.1.50 per litre on both petrol and diesel and asked oil companies to subsidise Rs.1. However, that has been wiped with the rise in fuel prices due to the increase in the crude oil price and the sharp fall in the Indian currency’s exchange rate over the U.S. dollar. In September, fuel price rose to touch a four-year high offering no respite to consumers. India imports more than 80% of crude oil from other countries making it an expensive commodity in the country. Any rise in oil prices leads to a significant incline in petrol and diesel prices.

    • High Fuel Prices Behind Falling Number of Cabs on the Road

      It is no longer a surprise that fuel prices have been rising consistently over the last month or so, hitting new heights and surpassing on a daily basis. Commuters who use their vehicles on a daily basis are left to fend for themselves and are now shelling out significant sums to make their everyday commute possible.

      Now, according to a report, office goers in the western suburbs of Thane have been witnessing a shortage of cabs in the city, particularly during peak hours. Sources say that this is because of the rising fuel prices which are touching new highs every day. Further, the long traffic jams during the peak hours mean more fuel consumption, which is causing Ola and Uber drivers are staying away from making themselves available for rides.

      Also, the rising diesel and petrol rates have brought about the rise of surge pricing, with commuters shelling out up to 2x the normal amount and more in some cases as there are shortage of cabs as it is. An official from an aggregator said that a rising demand will bring costs up and the more number of drivers stay away from the road, the more the cost of riders is likely to increase. He further said that more fuel price hikes will have a much worse impact on the scenario.
