PSU oil companies have not raised retail gasoline and diesel prices since November 2, 2021 despite a surge in global oil and fuel prices. Domestic LPG cylinder prices, which have not increased since October last year, were increased today by Rs 50 per cylinder.

Prices were supposed to start matching costs after the votes were counted on March 10, but the start of the second half of the ensuing budget session meant that price increases did not happen.

Private fuel retailers like Nayara Energy, Jio-bp and Shell have been forced to maintain petrol and diesel prices because they would have lost customers, if prices at their petrol pumps were higher than those at Indian Oil Corporation (IOC), Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd (BPCL) and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd (HPCL).

Yesterday, the price of diesel sold to large consumers rose by about 25 rupees a litre, in line with an increase of almost 40% in international oil prices.
