    How are Petrol Prices in Mumbai Updated?

    India joins the United States of America (USA) and Australia with the introduction of the daily fuel price revision on 16th June 2017. Every petrol station owned by the country’s premier oil corporations such as Indian Oil, Shell Oil, Hindustan Petroleum, and Bharat Petroleum in Mumbai will update diesel and petrol rates at 06:00 a.m. every day.

    The daily revision, which is also called as dynamic fuel pricing, replaces the earlier fortnightly-based fuel price revision. As per the new system, fuels are priced in consideration with overseas crude oil rates and the exchange ratio between the USD, the base currency and the INR, the local currency. Consumers will now remit market-determined prices irrespective of ups or downs.

    Fuel consumers in Mumbai can track the recent updates on petrol through an SMS service or a customer care service offered by state-owned oil entities including Bharat Petroleum (BP), Hindustan Petroleum (HP), Indian Oil, and Shell Oil. They can also check online by visiting the website of any of these oil companies.

    How are Petrol Prices in Mumbai Assessed?

    The final price, which is paid by consumers for petrol, is called as the retail selling price (RSP) of the commodity. How is the RSP computed? The calculation of the RSP is simple. We add the cost of crude oil including freight charges, the refinery transfer price (RTP), the commission charged by dealers, the VAT levied by the state government, and the central government’s excise duty to arrive at the retail selling price of petrol in Mumbai.

    The cost of crude oil is the cost incurred by oil marketing companies (OMCs). Oil is always traded in terms of the USD. Currently, a barrel of crude oil, which is equal to 159 litres, costs $50. The cost of a litre of oil is added in the price breakup of petrol. OMCs also incur the refinery cost. The commission charged by dealers may change within the city.

    The state VAT and the excise duty are the two tax components in the price structure of petrol. Both are subject to vary. Currently, petrol is taxed at 47.64% by the government of Maharashtra. The excise duty currently is Rs.19.48 per litre. The dealer’s commission is Rs.2.58 per litre in Mumbai.

    Factors Influencing Petrol Rates in Mumbai

    The factors that influence petrol prices are many in number. Let’s consider the most important influencers, which include the buying cost of unrefined oil, global political events, the demand and supply pattern, fluctuations in seasons and the currency conversion rate, the tax charged by the state, the tax charged by the central, and developments in oil-producing nations.

    Also Check: Petrol Price in Delhi

    In general, the Selling Price Petrol will go up when:

    • The purchasing price of raw oil gains.
    • The Indian currency falls against the base currency.
    • The central and state governments hike the tax levied on petrol.

    Similarly, Petrol Rate will come down when:

    • The purchasing price of raw oil diminishes.
    • The Indian currency gains against the USD (the base currency).
    • The central and state governments dampen the tax levied on petrol.

    The purchasing cost of unrefined oil is impacted by seasonal conditions, the refinery capabilities, overseas political moves, the demand for petrol by leading economies, overseas supplies and reserves, and weather conditions.

    GST vs. Petrol Prices in Mumbai

    Goods and Services Tax (GST) is a multi-phase, location-based, all-inclusive tax that shall be imposed on each value addition. It is a complete indirect tax platform that was introduced in July 2017. GST has been imposed on all goods and services except petroleum products.

    Also Know: Diesel Price In Mumbai

    The Oil Minister has recently tweeted that the inclusion of petroleum derivatives is the only recipe for balanced fuel rates. If GST is imposed on petroleum products, fuel prices will be cheaper. If GST is to be levied on petrol, all the tax components in the current price structure should be compensated by the GST rate.

    The entire oil and natural gas industry does not fall under the scope of the present GST system. The implementation of GST in the industry will result in double compliance expenses as all the industry stakeholders have to adhere to the current tax structure and the GST tax slab as well. Since petrol is not taxed under the GST framework, petrol prices in Mumbai remain unaffected.

    Diesel Cost vs. Petrol Costs in Mumbai

    The current price of diesel, which is as on 10th October 2017, is Rs.60.51 per litre while the current rate of petrol is Rs.77.54. Before reducing the excise duty, the cost of petrol in Mumbai was Rs.79.92 whereas the cost of diesel was Rs.62.76. The net difference between the cost of diesel and petrol has fallen to Rs.17.03 from Rs.17.16 after reducing the excise duty.

    Petrol Prices in Mumbai and other Prime Cities

    • Diesel Prices Hiked Across the Major Cities of the Country

      On Sunday, Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) increased the rates of diesel by Rs.0.07 after the prices were kept unchanged in the country on Saturday. The increase in the rates saw every litre of diesel being retailed for Rs.66.26 in New Delhi. The rates were increased by Rs.0.07 in the national capital. In Kolkata and Chennai, OMCs charged Rs.68 and Rs.69.96 for one litre of diesel after the prices were increased by Rs.0.07. In the commercial capital of the country, the rates were hiked by Rs.0.08 and every litre of diesel was sold for Rs.69.35.

      In the international oil market, per barrel of Brent crude oil was priced $71.5. The rates of diesel in the country depend on the 15-day average of global crude prices and the rupee-dollar exchange rate. It needs to be mentioned here that while the rates of fuel in the country have increased off late, it has been largely subdued in proportion to the recent surge in the global oil prices. Experts believe that the reason for it is the ongoing general elections as the government fear that there would be a public backlash if the rates are increased further.

Prices of petrol and diesel are much lower in Delhi compared to other metro cities due to lower taxes. New prices are effective from 6:00 am IST and may vary between cities and fuel stations due to local sales tax and logistics.

      Fuel rates are in sync with the global crude oil prices and the rupee-dollar exchange rate. On Tuesday, in the international oil market, crude oil prices dropped amid concerns of a weak global economic outlook. International benchmark Brent Crude oil futures peaked during trading hours to the highest level since November last year at $71.34 per barrel before dropping to $70.96 per barrel, declining by 0.2% or 14 cents. It may be noted that the international crude oil prices have risen by more than 7% in the last one month amid supply cuts led by the OPEC and US sanctions on Iran and Venezuela.

The international benchmark Brent Crude oil futures were trading at $65.36 per barre, declining by 31 cents or 0.5% compared to its previous close.

    • Oil Prices Fall by 2 per cent on Thursday

      On Thursday, global oil prices fell by more than 2 per cent given the concerns that the global demand would lag in the coming year. The futures of Brent crude and US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) fell by 1.35 and 1.65 US dollars per barrel. The drop recorded since the last close was 2.2 and 3.05 per cent respectively. It needs to be mentioned here that the rebound since the lows witnessed in the latter half of December was stalled given the worries that the trade war between the United States and China would continue and weighed on the demand for fuel.

      Gene McGillian, the director of Market Research at Tradition Energy in Stamford, Connecticut stated that the correction was stalled mainly due to concerns about demand growth. He added that there seemed to be uncertainty about what is going to happen with the trade talks, with global economic growth and demand in the coming year. McGillian was of the view that the market was particularly worried about the fact that whether demand was enough to absorb growing crude production from the United States. It is noteworthy to mention here that even though oil prices have shown a 20 per cent gain so far this year, global markets have remained nervous after China in the month of January reported the lowest annual economic growth in nearly 30 years. This along with an unwelcome increase in stocks of crude oil put pressure on the global oil prices in the recent past.
