What are the Factors Determining the Petrol Rates in Indore?

Petrol rates in Indore can change depending on various factors. The cost of crude oil in the international market directly influences the final price of petrol in Indore. As the transactions relating to the purchase of crude oil are completed in US Dollars, the value of the USD against the Indian Rupee (INR) is also crucial while determining the final petrol cost.

On a local level, refinery and freight charges levied by oil marketing companies (OMCs) and commissions for dealers also add to the final price of petrol in Indore. Furthermore, the Madhya Pradesh state government adds the value-added tax (VAT) as part of the petrol tax in Indore, while the central government imposes excise duty on the product.

How are Petrol Prices in Indore Computed?

Indian OMCs have to import crude oil from international markets before selling it retail to consumers. To start with, the cost of crude oil in the global markets is the first variable in computing the petrol price for the day. Additionally, OMCs have to pay in USD to purchase crude oil from international markets. Thus the USD to INR exchange rate is one of the primary factors that needs to be taken into consideration while computing petrol prices. To this, we need to add the central excise duty, the processing costs incurred by OMCs to refine petroleum from crude oil, and the dealer commissions. Finally, since every state in India levies its own VAT to the petrol price, the final petrol price in Indore can be computed by adding the Madhya Pradesh state-levied VAT to it. In a nutshell, we can sum up it as:

Petrol Price in Indore = Global crude oil prices + excise duty + OMC costs + Dealer Commission + State-levied VAT
