The fall has been from the rise in US oil production which is edging closer to that of Russia.

Diesel price falls by 5 paise in Bangalore

Petrol price in Bangalore dropped by 5 paise to Rs 70.44 per litre after the daily revision on IOC's (Indian Oil Corporation) website from a fall in international crude oil prices.

Oil prices abroad weighed down after a sudden rise in US crude inventories and on continued expectations on OPEC (organization of the petroleum exporting countries) increasing their output in their June meeting.

Benchmark Brent slipped by 20 cents to $77.30 per barrel while WTI was also down by 20 cents to $68.01 per barrel. The US increased its inventories by 1 million barrels in the last week as per data published by the American Petroleum Institute.

In India, the Kerala state government announced a deduction of Re 1 in the price per litre of petrol and diesel in the state by making a cut on VAT collected on fuel to reduce the burden of consumers. While the central government did not make any attempts to control fuel rates that hit an all-time high last week, Kerala was the first state to take an initiative.

Diesel price in Bangalore lowered marginally by one paise

Diesel price in Bangalore was lowered by one paise from Rs 70.50 to Rs 70.49 per litre. The decline in international crude oil prices has finally started showing in the fuel rates in India, although quite marginally.

Brent crude was trading at around $75 per barrel on Wednesday, almost $5 lower than its three and a half year high of $80.50 per barrel on May 17. The steep fall was an effect of the news that OPEC and its allies would increase production.

The decision is not finalized and even if it were to, it would take a while before the current deficiencies in supply for crude oil are eased. The international fuel rates are therefore going to hover around $75 per barrel mark for a while.

Italy's political turmoil that has caused the euro to hit a 10-month low, has, in turn, benefited the US dollar, making oil expensive for other currencies.

How diesel prices in Bangalore play out in the coming days is hard to predict under such prevailing uncertainties.

Diesel price in Bangalore hiked again

Diesel price in Bangalore was up by 14 paise to Rs 70.50 per litre in daily revision. Fuel prices in India are affected by international crude rates, strength of the rupee and tax rates.

Taxes rates have been consistently high since 2014, on account of social welfare expenses incurred by the central government.

International crude oil rates were mixed today with Brent futures experiencing a marginal hike of 0.28 percent to $75.51 a barrel while WTI fell by 1.64 percent to $66.77 a barrel.

Meanwhile, the rupee weakened against the US dollar in early trade, which is when the daily revision of petrol and diesel prices happens in India. The American currency gained from the reviving hopes of US-North Korea historic summit that is scheduled to take place in Singapore in June.

The easing tensions between the countries have made the dollar attractive to investors, pushing its value further.

If the rupee falls further, petrol prices in Bangalore may be hiked again.

Diesel price in Bangalore rises again

Diesel in Bangalore was revised to Rs 70.36 per litre as per state-owned IOC's website. This is the fifteenth day of hike in the rates. It has increased by Rs 1.38 per litre in a week.

Prices were frozen for 3 weeks prior to May 14, what appeared to be a pre-election strategy in the Karnataka state.

The losses from the halt are estimated to be Rs 500 crore for oil marketers as during the period the international crude oil benchmarks Brent and WTI were rallying.
On Monday, however, Brent was trading 6.4 percent lower than its month high while WTI was 9.1 percent lower than its peak. They were at $75.09 per barrel and $66.22 per barrel. International rates have been falling since late Friday when Russia and Saudi Arabia said they would increase their output to help stabilize prices in the market.

The hike despite easing prices says that the oil marketers are still recovering from their losses and it would take a while before the diesel rates are stabilized in Bangalore.

Diesel price in Bangalore rises despite drop in international rates

Diesel price in Bangalore increased by 16 paise to Rs 68.98 per litre after the daily revision by state-owned oil marketers like IOC.

The price rise was despite the drop in crude oil prices internationally. Russian energy minister said that his country and a group of oil-rich countries will increase their production in the coming days. Following the news, WTI crude fell by 4 percent to $67.88 per barrel from its week's peak of $72.83, while benchmark Brent was down by 3.1 percent or $2.42 to $76.37. It had hit its 3 and half year high of $80.50 last week.

A rise in fuel prices automatically pushes inflation and increase the cost of living in the Silicon Valley of India as consumer goods are transported in diesel running vehicles. The rise in rates is, however, lower than the average hike of 23 paise per litre of diesel this week in the city. The price can be expected to ease in the coming days.

Diesel price in Bangalore nearing Rs 70 mark

Diesel price in Bangalore was hiked by 22 paise per litre to Rs 69.93 on Friday. The fuel used in long-distance vehicles has been up by Rs 2.88 in the last 12 days.

Meanwhile, crude oil prices internationally have eased after Russia indicated that it will gradually increase its production. Reduced supply from oil rich countries and strong demand had pushed the fuel prices higher globally in the past few weeks. Geopolitical tensions between Iran and the US also triggered it.

Diesel rates in Bangalore are in line with most other cities in India. It includes Karnataka state VAT (value added tax) and sales tax apart from excise duty imposed by the central government. As a city highly dependent on road transport, the rise will impact costs incurred by transport companies which will ultimately be passed on to final consumers.

The Indian government is, however, looking for ways to reduce the burden on citizens. Temporary relief can come if taxes, which make up for a large portion of the final price is slashed to some extent.

25 May 2018
Diesel price in Bangalore close to Rs 70 per litre

After today's revision, diesel price in Bangalore stands at Rs 69.51 per litre. Fuel rates across the country at their all-time highs.

State-owned oil companies had started the practice of revising fuel rates on a daily basis in June 2017. This means that the volatility of the oil rates is being passed on to the consumers.

International crude oil rates and domestic taxes along with processing fee makes up for the price you pay at your local bunk in Bangalore. While global oil benchmarks are trading higher, the taxes paid to the Karnataka and central government in the form of excise duty, VAT (value added tax) and surcharge are also significant.

Due to reduced production in oil-rich countries, diesel prices in Bangalore may only find relief if the taxes are controlled by the governments. There are also recommendations to bring fuel under the GST (goods and service tax) regime, to regulate the rates across the country.
