Petrol prices in Uttar Pradesh are subject to underlying factors like global crude rate, availability of sufficient fuel, and the rate of forex used to import petroleum products. It includes:
The GoI uses USD as the preferred import currency for crude products. As USD is subject to fluctuation in money markets, its rate against the INR spirals, making crude prices more expensive than before. Since the ongoing clash between Russia and Ukraine, the GoI has scaled up oil purchases in massive volumes from Russia, using INR-RUB, thus minimising USD fluctuations.
Crude oil availability is subject to onshore and offshore drilling rigs. However, the OPEC+ countries have reduced petroleum outputs after the COVID-19 and Ukrainian crises to control the sliding prices in the international market. It has led to limited availability of crude while demands are soaring, leading to dearer rates of petrol and diesel prices to compensate for expensive buys. This affects the petrol price in Uttar Pradesh, like the rest of the states of India.
Petrol prices in Uttar Pradesh stay controlled, thanks to the reduction in state excise duty. While petroleum is yet under the GST scheme, it's estimated to be 18%. However, the latest excise duty charged is over 30% per litre over the dealer's rate sold by OPCs.
Uttar Pradesh is undergoing rapid industrialisation, and expensive fuel charges will dampen its economic growth.
