Motorists hit by 'hellish' petrol price rise in May

06 June, 2018, 10:54 | Author: Martin Tyler
  • World oil prices have increased by 67 per cent since June last year prompting the price of petrol to surge

Petrol was priced at Rs 80.47 in Kolkata, Rs 85.65 in Mumbai and Rs 80.80 in Chennai on Tuesday.

Petrol prices were cut for the eighth consecutive day across Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai and Chennai on Wednesday. It may be noted that a litre of petrol is retailing at Rs 77.83 in Delhi while the same quantity of diesel was available for Rs 68.88.

After the one paisa reduction in fuel prices on May 30, which caused much criticism from the Opposition, prices have since fallen continuously.

Petrol prices rose by 6p a litre in May - the biggest monthly increase since the RAC began tracking prices 18 years ago. U.S. crude ended $1.06 lower at $64.75 a barrel, after earlier touching $64.57 - its lowest since April 10.

Since April, growing concerns about risks to global crude oil supplies have caused worldwide oil prices, and local retail petrol prices, to jump dramatically, peaking in May.

In the 16 consecutive increases since May 14, petrol price was hiked by Rs 3.8 per litre and diesel by Rs 3.38. This was in line with the higher crude oil prices.

According to a report in Reuters, OPEC Ministers from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait and Algeria met unofficially in Kuwait on Saturday. Venezuela's crude oil production fell almost 13 per cent previous year due to intense internal conflict and Iran is staring at a fresh sanction from the US. India imports over 80 per cent of its crude oil requirement and it is the world's third largest oil importer. Since June 1, it has come down by 39 paise for petrol and 28 paise for diesel.

Since OPEC countries orchestrated an oil supply cut in 2016, the cost of a litre of unleaded petrol has risen by more than a third - from $1.14 to $1.53 - adding $27 to the price of filling a family vehicle.

In Gauteng, the price of petrol will stand at R15.79 per litre.
