Oil increased to over $80 per barrel on Tuesday as investors piled into risky assets in response to U.S. data that indicated sluggish inflation. Concern over supply interruptions, like the prolonged closure of the Canada-to-United States Keystone oil pipeline as a result of a significant breach, also helped to support the market. Brent crude futures had increased $2.85 to $80.84 per barrel. WTI crude rose $2.49 to $75.66.
Despite the hip-hop trend of prices of crude oil in the global markets, petrol and diesel prices have remained largely stable in India. However, the price of gasoline and diesel in India has stayed largely steady since the central government cut the tax charge.
The Center reduced the excise duty on gasoline by Rs 8 per litre and on diesel by Rs 6 per litre in May of this year, which resulted in the last big decrease in fuel prices. In India, the price of gasoline and diesel is updated every midnight based on the global situation. Delhi’s current per-liter prices are Rs 96.72 for gasoline and Rs 89.62 for diesel.
