With the incessant price hikes for motor fuels, a litre of petrol price has crossed 100 mark in all the metro cities. The price hike rally is expected to continue if the international crude oil prices continue to firm up. Brent crude price in the international market is currently more than $73 per barrel.

Petrol and diesel's price hike rally is not only hitting hard the motorists, but non-motorists as well. The rapidly increasing price of diesel is impacting the transportation cost significantly, resulting in skyrocketing prices for consumables and non-consumables as well. This is resulting in burning pockets for the common people.

Petrol and diesel prices comprise various components including excise duty imposed by the central government and variable VAT amount imposed by the state governments. Besides that, freight charges and dealer commissions to add up the price.

While some of the state governments have reduced their share of VAT in the light of the increasing fuel prices, the central government remained adamant about not reducing the excise duty on fuels. This has caused protests from various quarters of society.
