It becomes extremely important to check the daily petrol price in Bangalore before you fill your tank. This is because unlike before, where petrol prices changed every fortnight, what we are seeing is that prices keep changing in Bangalore city more often. For example, today's petrol prices in Bangalore was very different to what it was until a few days ago. This is because of the beginning of June 15, there is a daily price revision.

Daily Petrol Price Revise in Bangalore

In fact, after petrol prices were deregulated, we saw fortnight revisions.

This was highly inconvenient for consumers who ended-up paying Rs 2-3 higher for fortnightly revisions. This put an additional pressure and burden on the consumer. Things have become a lot easier these days with the everyday price revision of petrol not only in the city of Bangalore but, also the entire nation. Oil marketing companies like Indian Oil, HPCL and BPCL will now revise the prices early morning and this is a big plus for consumers.

India is a fast growing country, and also India is a big producer, consumer, and importer of petroleum products. Demand for oil products is increasing in India and India, There is a vast scope of oil storage. Having petroleum will provide technological improvements, financial incentives, policy initiatives and legislative measures. Mainly, the transport sector is the sector where most of the petroleum products especially petrol and high-speed diesel are consumed. Due to this consumption petrol price in Banglore is increasing day by day. Comparatively the petrol rates in Banglore in the past ten years are up by nearly thirty to forty rupees. There was a time when petrol price Bangalore was as low as Rs 40. But now due to the high Consumption and the necessity petrol rates are now at nearly almost at Rs 85 per litre. 

Petrol Rates Bangalore

Bangalore, the capital of Karnataka state, and the silicon of India is situated in southern India. The city has around 8 million people, which makes it one of the biggest city in India. The city is home to a number of startups and unicorns driving the economy of the state and the country. Petrol price plays a crucial part in the city’s daily life and people’s expending.

The price in Bangalore in Bangalore has witnessed various ups and downs in the last couple of weeks and made a huge impact on the business operations and life of common people. On November 01 the price of petrol in the city was Rs 113.52 but after the government reduced the excise duty on both Petrol and diesel with effect from 03 November the price saw a decline of Rs 05 in petrol. As of November 25, the price stands at Rs 100.56, a major decline after a long period of time.

In the previous month, the rate of petrol in Bangalore city witnessed a number of ups and downs, however, these changes didn’t impact much. There was only 1.33% of an incline in the previous month.

The Excise duty plays an important role in determining the price of petrol in the city and the state. The crude oil price is also one of the determining factors in the price of petrol across the world. A small change in the price of crude oil in the international market makes a huge impact on the global oil market and so in cities of India, Bangalore is no exception.

Steady petrol price in Bangalore

From the past three years the petrol price in Bangalore has changed frequently once every 15 days. Before June 16th petrol price in Bangalore used to change every 15 days or two weeks by the top petroleum companies once. But the price of petrol now changed daily in the morning at 6.00 am. This change has been due to various reasons. Before two weeks once the price used to change around one or two rupees whereas now the price change in paise.
Anyhow due to the price change, larger vehicles tend to lose or save money every day. Even the companies which use a lot of petrol every day by buying and storing them in the big vessels may also buy petrol by having a track on petrol every day and buy it when the price of the petrol in Bangalore falls.

Why Diesel price is less than Petrol price in Bangalore?

We know that both petrol and diesel are produced from crude oil then why is the petrol price in Bangalore is costlier than Diesel price most of us wonder. There are many reasons such as the refining costs, taxes, demand, etc.

The first and the main reason for it is the refining cost. In the refining process of the crude oil, crude Oil is separated into different components then further it is treated to form petrol, diesel or other petroleum products. So during the further treatment for making petrol, it will cost a lot whereas for the diesel it will not cost that much comparatively. Diesel is heavier and less volatile when compared to petrol. So, Diesel is not as much refined as petrol is refined. There are other duties such as Excise Duty, VAT, etc. which are a little higher for petrol when compared to Diesel. All these together make the petrol price in Bangalore costlier comparatively.

Comparing petrol prices vs diesel prices?

In diesel car, initial buying cost is high, but mileage is greater than its petrol counterpart. So now what matters is how much you drive in a month, if you drive around 1500kms a month or 50kms every day, then go for diesel, otherwise petrol.

If you are someone who frequently takes long distance trips, comfortability would be a factor, and diesel cars are more comfortable than petrol, plus the ease of driving will be better in diesel ones.
Coming to Bangalore, the usage of four wheelers has risen in both petrol and diesel. But, people prefer the petrol cars because compare to diesel, petrol cars are low on maintenance. Oil marketing companies are planning to put in place a mechanism to which fuel prices petrol will be compared with international crude oil prices on a daily basis.
From the past four days, the petrol price in Bangalore is constant. 

Factors influencing petrol rates in Bangalore

Petrol prices consists of different factors such as the international price of crude oil, freight costs, refining costs, profit margins of the oil manufacturing company, commission of the distributors, state and federal taxes and other charges such as pollution prevention and pump servicing fees. Even though most of the factors appear the same from location to location, the value added tax (VAT) levied by the state government is one major factor that greatly impacts the petrol price in Bangalore or any other city in India.

In Bengaluru's scenario it is the VAT imposed on petroleum products by the Karnataka government that is the biggest factor when it comes to the petrol price in Bengaluru. Also, the petrol price varies from one fuel firm to the other and the price differ from BP and HP petrol pumps and IOC. Other influences that cause small differences in the fuel cost are commission charges for dealers and service charges for petrol stations, which are different for various stations around the region.

The crude prices gained in Asia as they rebounded from previous declines amidst supply tightness and geopolitical tensions. The weak demand for fuel in the United States of America has cast a shadow on the market this week.

The signs of decline in the U.S. crude demand have weighed on the fuel prices and have sent benchmark contracts sliding by around 3% during the previous session. Even the tight global supplies have continued to keep the oil markets buoyed.

During June, the demand for gasoline and distillate fuels surged up by record highs in India, despite sky-rocketing prices with total refined product consumption running at 18% more than a year ago.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine had bolstered the oil prices to jump over $100 and trade beyond the $100 per barrel range for over a month. China’s move to impose lockdown restrictions has weighed on the fuel demand to decline. The dragon country is one of the biggest importers and consumers of crude globally.

As crude is traded in the U.S. currency, a weak U.S. dollar will fuel cheaper for buyers of other countries currencies.

China has placed Shanghai under prolonged lock-down owing to a surge in the pandemic cases. The dragon country is all set to reopen the city on June 1. China is one of the largest consumers and importers of fuel globally. The lock-downs and restrictions on the movement of people had diminished the crude outlook demand, weighing on its prices to drop.

Petrol rate in Bangalore

Bangalore is one of the biggest metropolitan city of India. The population is very huge while comparing with other major cities in India. The petrol rate in Bangalore is not changed today and stands at Rs.75.30/- due to elections which are going to held in the city tomorrow. From the last 10 days, petrol rate in Bangalore has been moving in a very narrow band.

The fuel rates in Bangalore mainly depends on how international prices of crude oil move. It is largely linked to international crude prices, which trade abroad. Indian crude basket determines the price of petrol in Bangalore. In the international oil market, crude prices went up, backed by worries over tightening global supply because of US curbs against Iran and Venezuela. International Brent crude oil futures were trading at USD 71.93 per barrel, up by 21 cents or 0.3 per cent from their last close.

The prices of Oil eased by 1 percent from their 2019 highs after the attention has now shifted to the lack of progress in the US and China talks. To pile on to the fears of the global economic slowdown was the release of grim manufacturing data from Germany and the US. Slower growth in the world economy is bad for oil demand, thus pushing its prices lower. Benchmark Brent crude futures fell by 1.3 percent to $66.96 a barrel. The contract hit a four-month high of $68.69 on Thursday. Supply cuts from the OPEC and its allies have caused oil prices to increase by as much as 20 percent from January.

US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) futures were down by 14 cents to $59.84 per barrel. The hike in petrol price in Bangalore today appears to be a result of the rise in the benchmarks in the previous trading day. Crude rates are mixed for the moment with factors like the OPEC production cuts and concerns of a slowdown in economic growth have been balancing the price both ways. In a previous session this week Brent hit its four-month high, however, data suggests that economic activity has slowed down in Europe, Asia, and North America.

Benchmark Brent crude oil futures were up by 5 cents to $68.55 a barrel while the US West Texas Intermediate was down by 13 cents to $60.10 per barrel. India imports crude oil from the USA as well as the Middle East. Apart from the global rate of crude, the foreign exchange rate also impacts the price at which fuel is sold in India.

US WTI increased marginally by 6 cents to $ 59.09 per barrel. The global rates have increased by almost a third in 2019 mainly due to OPEC's decision to withhold around 1.2 million barrels per day. Analysts are expecting the prices to curb down from the suspected global economic slowdown.

Petrol price in Bangalore halted

19 March 2019
Petrol price in Bangalore raised

Petrol price in Bangalore today was increased by 7 paise to Rs 75.20 per litre. The retail prices of fuel were raised across Indian cities despite a fall in crude prices internationally. In the global markets, benchmark Brent fell by 26 cents to $ 66.90 a barrel from concerns of an economic slowdown that could possibly dent demand for fuel and despite the possibility of prolonged OPEC-led oil supply curbs. After a report said the OPEC's panel meeting on Monday to review progress with an OPEC-led supply cut deal is recommending the producers cancel a policy meeting that was scheduled for April, caused the prices to go lower. While Saudi Arabia, OPEC's de-facto leader has been cutting output by more than the amount it is required to and after canceling the April meeting, it is suggesting its unwillingness by other OPEC and non-OPEC producers to do anything to stop prices from rising. However, the increase in oil outputs from the United States has helped to offset the supply cuts.
