Crude oil prices fluctuate, but fuel prices remain unchanged


New Delhi, first published December 18, 2021 at 9:32 a.m. IST

Gasoline and diesel prices last changed on Diwali. Since then, oil marketing companies have refrained from revising fuel prices. This despite the fact that crude oil prices have continued to fluctuate in the international market. At 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, the price of WTI crude oil was $ 70.86 per barrel, while the price of Brent crude oil was $ 73.52 per barrel.

Normally, oil marketing companies set prices based on price movements in the international market. That said, the three MOCs – Indian Oil, Bharat Petroleum, and Hindustan Petroleum – did not pass on the benefits to consumers when crude oil prices recently fell. However, fuel prices vary across the country due to the value added tax levied by each state.

In the meantime, let’s see how much fuel costs across the country:

Petrol: Rs 109.98 per liter
