Why the prices of petrol diesel are increasing
Actually, the retail price of petrol diesel in India is linked to the price of crude oil in the global market. This means that if the price of crude oil is low in the global market, then petrol diesel will be cheaper in India. If the price of crude oil increases then more will have to be spent for petrol diesel, but this does not happen every time. When the price of crude oil rises in the global market, its burden is put on the customers, but when the price of crude oil is low, the government imposes tax on the customers to increase its revenue.
