HPCL director (finance) B Mukherjee said that with crude hovering at $108 per barrel in the overseas markets and the rupee depreciating to 49 per dollar in the last three months, the desired increase in retail price of petrol works out to Rs1.82 per litre
New Delhi: State-owned oil companies are pressing for a Rs1.82 per litre increase in petrol prices because of rupee depreciation and hardening of crude oil prices, reports PTI.
Public sector oil firms had in September raised petrol prices by Rs5 per litre.
“From today, there are some losses on petrol. To cover them, we may have to increase prices,” HPCL director (finance) B Mukherjee told reporters here.
He said that crude oil is hovering at around $108 per barrel in international markets, while the rupee has depreciated from 46.50 a dollar three months ago to over 49 per dollar now, increasing the cost of oil imports.
Mukherjee said the loss on petrol is currently Rs1.50 per litre and after including local levies, the desired increase in retail prices is Rs1.82 per litre.
“We are in discussion with other oil companies on raising prices. Let’s say, we are toying with the idea,’ he said, refusing to say when the country’s fuel prices would be raised.
