Factors Determining the Current Petrol Price in Punjab

In Punjab, the petrol price is determined by several factors. From the time crude oil is purchased to the time it is sold, there are several determinants at play that control the price. Firstly, the price of crude oil varies as per the demand, global supply, and political factors. To add to this, the currency exchange rate of Indian rupee to US dollar is dynamic too. As a result, the price of oil is constantly fluctuating.


Once the oil is bought in, the oil marketing companies (OMCs) add the oil refining and transportation charges. This makes up the depot price, which is the cost at which the dealers buy the petrol from the OMCs. At this stage, the dealer’s commission and the central excise duty and value-added tax (VAT) levied by the state get added. This is the final retail price at which you can then buy petrol in Punjab.


Luckily, you can continue to save on petroleum purchases irrespective of the fluctuations in global fuel prices. All you need is a credit card! Yes. It is true!

How Often is the Petrol Price in Punjab Revised?

The petrol price in Punjab is revised on an everyday basis owing to the system of dynamic fuel pricing which was introduced in 2017. Under this, the price of petrol in Punjab is revised at 6 AM everyday as per the current global crude oil rates and the currency conversion rate. The system helps bring transparency and reduces the challenges that were there in the earlier system of fortnightly price revisions. Also, users can buy fuel at the market-determined prices, be it higher or lower.

What is the Impact of GST on Petrol Price in Punjab?

In July 2017, the GST (Goods and Services Tax) was introduced as an all-inclusive tax to make purchasing items and services easy with uniform taxation across slabs. However, petrol was not included in the classification of goods and services that fall under the GST structure. As a result, the petrol price in Punjab is not impacted by GST.
