  • Durban motorists unhappy with fuel price increase

Even in Mumbai, diesel prices are rising constantly and are already close to their earlier high of Rs 80.10.

However there is reason to remain cautiously optimistic, as current rand strength is eating into the current fuel price under-recovery caused by a strong oil price and the aforementioned increase amounts could reduce significantly should the trend continue.

However, any increase whatsoever would be hard for South Africans to absorb, given that fuel prices are already at record highs, with 93 Unleaded retailing at R16.85 in Gauteng and 95 Unleaded at R17.08, with those at the coast paying R16.49.

Petrol costs Rs 82.72 per litre and has witnessed an increase of Rs 1.22 per litre since the October 4 decision. In March, a litre of unleaded 95 petrol cost R13.76. While addressing the media the CM said that if the Punjab government reduced Value-Added Tax on petrol and diesel, it would be hard for the state to function.

The government had, with effect from October 5, cut excise duty on petrol and diesel by Rs 1.50 per litre and asked state-owned oil firms to subsidise the fuel by another Re 1 a litre. "There are about 400 petrol pumps in Delhi which also have linked CNG pumps with them".

While in Delhi diesel rates are at their highest ever, in most the other states it is lower than the peak as some state governments had matched the Centre's move to cut excise duty and oil company subsidy by a similar cut in local sales tax or VAT.

"We urge the big four supermarkets who are responsible for selling the largest quantities of fuel in the United Kingdom to cut their petrol prices now by at least 3p per litre to ease the burden on motorists and reflect the cost savings they are making". India is the third largest oil consumer in the world. Its cutting-edge formats, state-of-the-art newsrooms commands the attention of 48 million Indians weekly.
