Daily petrol prices in Mumbai were revised beginning from June 15, 2017, after it was felt that the oil marketing companies were capable of revising petrol prices on a daily basis. While it was earlier not possible, due to various technical issues, these days it is highly possible to revise prices on a daily basis.
Mumbai petrol prices in the first few days of price revision are seeing changes of a few paise.This is largely beneficial for consumers as they can easily absorb the same. On the other hand it may be difficult to absorb the huge burden of says Rs 2-3, which would happen after a fortnight's revision in daily prices. We are providing todays petrol prices, which is largely the daily price, the revision of which happens at 6 am in the morning. You would do well to check the daily petrol prices on goodreturns.inn and fill petrol, in case you are planning to completely fill your tank.
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 $55 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.
There are a host of factors that ultimately lead to higher petrol prices in the city of Mumbai. This includes the import duty, and the taxes that are imposed by the state. Apart from this todays petrol prices in Mumbai also reflect the dealer margins, that is the margins that are levied by the retail petrol pumps. Many estimates suggest that are petrol rates should work to Rs 40, but we in Mumbai end-up paying Rs 80 per litre. This is not good and the government must thing of reducing the taxes on petrol, so as to benefit the common man. The fuel internationally has fallen from levels of $100 to the current levels of $65, but we have not seen a corresponding reduction in the prices of petrol at the retail level.
However, it would be very important to check the petrol rates before you fill your car or vehicle tank.
