Consistent as it has been for the past few days, the fuel prices did not show any change on January 15, 2022. The Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL), at 6AM, updated the list for the fuel prices across various states in the country and the rates maintained where they were yesterday.
Accordingly, one litre of petrol in the national capital costs Rs 95.41, whereas a litre of diesel costs Rs 86.67. After the reduction of excise duty imposed by the central government, people breathed a little easier as the prices dropped a notch from a soaring high in November.
Coming to various states of the country, the state-run Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs), too, have maintained stability in fuel prices. In the capital of Uttar Pradesh, Lucknow, a litre of petrol comes at a price of Rs 95.28, while a litre diesel costs Rs. 86.80. In Mumbai, too, the prices remained steady. One litre of petrol costs Rs 109.98, whereas one litre of diesel comes at a price of Rs94.14.
These prices vary on various factors and see modifications as per the fluctuations in these factors. Valuation of the Indian rupee against the US Dollar, demand for fuel, consumption ratio by refineries, etc., are some of these factors. In addition, the variation in states is rooted from the distinct Value Added Tax (VAT) that is imposed by the government of that state.
