Diesel Prices Hit New High In Kolkata

The prices of Diesel has reached the highest level in Kolkata. There is a continuous rise in the price of diesel not just in Kolkata but in the entire country. The main reason behind the surge in the prices of diesel is the surge in the prices of crude oil in the international market.

India depends on exports to fulfill the domestic requirements of fuel. Any impact on the prices of fuel at the global level is likely to affect the prices in the India domestic market as well.

Today’s diesel price in Kolkata is Rs 71.08 per liter, up by 0.19 paise from the previous day’s price. On January 1, 2018, the price of diesel per liter was recorded at Rs 62.36. The prices of diesel are up by almost 14% since January 1, 2018.

The rise in the prices of diesel will also trigger inflation rates in the country, which in turn will directly impact the economy of the country.

The strong dollar and declining rupee are also adding worry to the investors amidst the surge in the prices of the crude oil in the global market. There is a possibility that Indian rupee may further fall in the coming days and hit an all-time low or Rs 70 per US$1.

The rupee is down by more than 6% against U.S. dollar since the beginning of the year adding concerns over macroeconomic conditions.
