How are petrol rates in Mumbai determined?

Petrol prices in Mumbai are determined in a host of ways, including the international prices of crude and the movement of the currency against the US Dollar.  When global prices of crude rally, they tend to impact domestic petrol prices, which means todays petrol prices in Mumbai are likely to go higher. For example, if crude oil moves from $40 to $70, its impact would most certainly be felt on the prices of petrol at the retail levels.

However, what would also be paramount would be the currency movement. For example, when the US dollar rises against against the rupee, crude prices become costlier for fuel. On the other hand if the rupee gains against the dollar, both petrol and diesel prices become costlier. It is hoped that this in turn would entail lowering the prices of petrol at the petrol stations.

Amid the lockdown caused by coronavirus, several governments have increased fuel taxes to increase revenues and also the central government had raised the excise duty on both automobile fuels. However, the increase in excise duty did not translate into a related rise in retail prices, as it was modified to the decline in crude oil rates. Different taxes, including taxes levied by both state and central governments, accounted for around 70% of retail costs. The VAT on petrol and diesel in Maharashtra is 26% and 24% respectively.

What is the impact of GST on petrol price in Mumbai?

What is the fixed limit GST rate up to date? Definitely, that is 28 per cent. Such as petrochemicals, petrol is not covered by GST, which means for Goods and Services Tax. If GST is to be adopted, all tax elements should be omitted from the current fuel price overview of the market.. And the retail selling price (RSP) of petrol will decrease by a wide margin if GST were introduced at its highest stage, i.e. 28 per cent. The change will destroy the revenue source of Maharashtra’s government and the central government. It is the central government's authority to import petrol under the GST system. Conscious of the sectors of natural gas and oil? The whole oil and natural gas market has been put beyond GST's authority. The sector has many participants, ranging from OMCs to fuel bunker operators. It is expected that the implementation of GST in the sector will have a negative impact on its participants. For example, industry players are forced to comply with double tax regimes, creating higher delivery cost. The GST authority may recommend increasing the tax rate to make sure that petrol is imposed under the GST regime and that the revenue stream of the state and central government remains constant.  

 

 

 

 

Petrol Prices Hiked in Mumbai

The petrol prices were hiked in Mumbai despite a fall in the fuel prices in the international markets amidst disagreement between the members of the OPEC amidst ongoing talks.

The petrol rates in Mumbai traded at Rs 105.92 per litre. 

On the global platform, Brent was seen at $76.39 per barrel; West Texas Intermediate (WTI) at $75.35 per barrel. 

On Friday, the members of OPEC voted to increase production by about 2 million barrels per day (bpd) from August through December 2021 and to extend the remaining output cuts to the end of 2022. But the decision received objections from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), resulting in the prevention of an agreement. 

It was a rare public disagreement between the members of the oil producers club, as national interests were increasingly diverging, impacting the OPEC + policy as oil users want more oil as their economies revive from the coronavirus pandemic. 

An analyst from ANZ notes that the latest move raises the bar of the oil producers club’s alliance which has shown great unity which resulted in rebalancing the market following a collapse in demand. A break-up could result in a free-for-all leading to a drop in the prices.  

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia’s Energy Minister sought on Sunday to push back against UAE’s opposition to the proposed deal of OPEC and called for compromise and rationality to get unanimity when the members meet again on Monday.

Petrol Prices Gains in Mumbai

The petrol prices gained in Mumbai despite witnessing a drop in the international markets amidst delay in the outcome of the OPEC + supply meeting. The petrol  rates in Mumbai recorded at Rs 99.16 per litre.

On the global forum, Brent was seen at $75.55 per barrel, down by 0.38%; West Texas Intermediate (WTI) at $74.74 per barrel, down by 0.65%.

Both the U.S. crude benchmarks contracts recorded gains on Thursday on unexpectedly cautious plans made by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC). The proposal was supported by Saudi Arabia and Russia, noted sources. 

The oil prices retreated though after the plan received some resistance from the UAE and OPEC + which postponed a ministerial meeting.

The members of the OPEC had met yesterday to decide on the fate of future global crude supply amidst rampantly rising newly found delta covariant. 

Both the benchmark contracts had recorded gains on unexpectedly cautious plans by the OPEC and its allies. 

WTI is on track as it posted a 1.4% hike during the week as the U.S. crude market expected to tighten as refinery runs picked up to meet recovering gasoline demand. 

Brent on the other hand, slipped down by 0.7% during the week. The drop was in reflection over growing concerns about the fuel demand in parts of Asia which is witnessing rising cases of highly contagious coronavirus delta variants. 

Analysts from Citibank note, they do not expect WTI to climb to touch a premium to Brent because they expect the U.S. oil output to pick up at the end of fiscal 2021 and grow further in fiscal 2022.

Petrol Prices Stable in Mumbai

The petrol prices are stable in Mumbai despite its rally in the international markets ahead of the meeting of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and its allies later today. The petrol rates in Mumbai recorded at Rs 104.90 per litre.

Since the beginning of fiscal 2021, the West Texas Intermediate (WTI) has managed to climb up over 50% at around $48.5 per barrel. The improved fuel demand has bolstered the fuel prices to march up in the overseas markets.

The revival of the crude demand has weighed on the fuel prices to march up. The easing of the economies has increased the movement of people and rebound in goods transportation and air travel as well.

The WTI has recorded growth of over 50% since the beginning of fiscal 2021 at around $48.5 per barrel.

The prices of gasoline have also surged on the back of a post-pandemic driving spree. Hence a $75 a barrel of crude will mean even higher prices at the pump.

Petrol Prices Stagnant in Mumbai

The petrol prices are stagnant in Mumbai despite slipping in the international markets amidst a drop in the U.S. stockpiles. The petrol rates in Mumbai traded at Rs 104.90 per litre. 

In the overseas scenario, Brent traded at $75.36 per barrel; West Texas Intermediate (WTI) at $73.96 per barrel. 

The outbreak and rampant spreading of the highly contagious Delta covariant across many parts of the globe has prompted new lockdowns. The situation has weighed on the fuel demand revival. 

The oil prices traded flat on Wednesday as they headed for monthly and quarterly gains after data suggested the shrinking of U.S. crude stockpiles. 

Both the U.S. crude contracts are just below the highs they had reached last in fiscal 2018 and are set to record their seventh monthly rise in the past eight months. 

Investment management firm, Goldman Sachs expects that demand will increase further by 2.2 million bpd by the end of fiscal 2021, leaving a 5 million bpd supply shortfall.

Meanwhile, an internal report of OPEC seen by Reuters highlights that the oil markets are likely to return to a glut situation after the oil producers club is expected to unravel oil production trims of under 6 million barrels per day (bpd) by April 2022. 

The members and their allies are meeting to decide on the fate of the future of the crude supply during tomorrow’s meeting.

The crude prices declined for a second straight day on Tuesday on growing worries over a slow down in the oil demand amidst a surge in the outbreaks of the newly contagious coronavirus variant Delta. The situation has sparked new mobility restrictions across the globe, weighing on the fuel prices to slide.

The members of the oil producers club set to meet on July 1 to decide on the future of the global crude supply. But the current surge in the Delta variant cases may weigh on the outcome of the OPEC meeting.

The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and its allies had earlier forecasted the oil demand to improve during the fourth quarter of 2021. They had also predicted that the worldwide fuel supply will fall short of demand by 2.2 million barrels per day (bpd), giving the producers some room to agree to increase output.

The oil producers club is returning around 2.1 million barrels per day (bpd) to the markets starting from May through July as a part of their earlier plan to gradually ease last year’s deeper output cuts. 

The crude rates surged up to hit record highs and then recoiled from highs last seen during October 2018 on Monday’s trade session. Investors focused their eyes on the outcome of the meeting of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and its allies as the United States and Iran wrangle over the revival of the nuclear deal. 

The members of the OPEC will be meeting on July 1, to decide on the future of the global crude supply for August amidst improved fuel demand recovery.

The sharp fall in the U.S. inventories and uncertainty over the future of the nuclear deal of Tehran has boosted the oil price to scale up during the recent trade sessions. 

The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and its allies will meet on July 1, to discuss the future of the global crude supply after unwinding last year’s record deeper output cuts to support prices. But two sources close to the oil producer’s club revealed that no decision has been made yet.

On Wednesday, the fuel prices surged up in the global markets as industry data revealed that the U.S. crude stockpiles declined more than expected. The situation has reinforced views of tightening supply-demand balance with air and road travel picking up in North America and Europe. 

If the official figures reported from the U.S. Energy Information Administration gets confirmed, it would be the fifth straight weekly drop, showing that the U.S.market is tightening.
