barrel of oil used to be 78.8 $ before
now the price is 60.0$
also the price of refined petrol at refineries is 27 Rs Petrol
and for diesel it is 22.5 Rs
Kerosene is kept at 23 Rs a litre to avoid mixing in diesel....
still the government is draining blood of poor masses by charging a whooping 60 Rs a litre on Petrol alone . Some stupid committee of oil and gas had a handshake to charge equal rates at fuel stations rather than creating competition by incurring a price difference at fuel stations run by different companies.
but the point remains... nobody protests so why government should care if the people are happy(and proud) with this price.
