How is price of Petrol influenced in Akola ?

There are a few factors that can influence the retail price of petrol fuel. These include:

The cost of crude oil : petrol is made from crude oil, so the price of crude oil can have a big impact on the price of petrol.

Taxes and fees: Many governments impose taxes and fees on petrol fuel, which can add to the retail price.

Transportation costs: The cost of transporting petrol fuel from the refinery to the retail location can also affect the price.

Market demand: If there is strong demand for petrol fuel, the price may be higher.

Competition: Retailers may also consider the prices being offered by their competitors when setting the price for petrol fuel.

Retail prices for petrol fuel can vary significantly from one region to another, due to differences in these factors. For example, petrol fuel may be more expensive in a region with higher taxes or transportation costs.

In some cases, retailers may use pricing algorithms or software to help determine the retail price of petrol fuel. These algorithms may take into account a variety of factors, including the cost of crude oil, the price of petrol fuel in neighboring markets, and the retailer's own costs and margins.

Overall, the retail price of petrol fuel is determined by a complex set of factors, and it can be influenced by both local and global market conditions.

How to calculate retail price of petrol Akola ?

In India, the retail price of petrol is determined by a combination of the cost of crude oil, taxes and duties, and the cost of distributing and selling the fuel. The price can be calculated by adding up the price of crude oil, processing costs, profit margins of the oil marketing companies, freight costs, excise duty and the different taxes levied by central and state governments.

So here is the list of costs that sum up to determine the retail price of petrol-

- Cost of Crude oil

- Processing cost to extract petrol from crude oil by oil marketing companies

- Profit margins of oil marketing company and dealers’ commission*

- Transportation and freight costs

- Excise duty imposed by the central government

- VAT (Value added tax) imposed by state governments**

* The commission varies a little with the location of fuel pumps. For instance the dealer commission for diesel is Rs 2.56 on an average in Delhi.

** Different states impose VAT at different rates thus, the price of diesel varies from state to state.

Why do petrol and diesel not follow the GST regime?

Bringing petrol under the GST would effectively mean reducing taxes on it. The highest tax slab under the GST is 28%, while fuels such as petrol and diesel are taxed at more than 100% as of now.

To understand the politics of taxation of petrol and diesel between the center and the state, we need to understand the difference between the taxation mechanisms of the two.

The Central government taxes the fuels at a specific rate using various duties and cess while states use a combination of specific and ad- Valorem rates to tax the fuels. Center shares 41% of its collection with states while states add the whole collection to their respective exchequer.

Both the Central government, as well as the state governments, do not want to compromise with the present tax collection from petrol and diesel since they form a large part of the state revenue. In addition to that, states do not want the center to hold sole power over the decision of tax rates of petrol and diesel since in the present tax regime they enjoy the benefit of a dynamic rate giving them the liberty to adjust their collection.
