New Delhi: The prospect that a stalled Iran nuclear deal and Moscow’s new mobilisation drive in its invasion of Ukraine would further constrain global supplies caused oil prices to increase in early Asian trade on Friday. Brent crude futures had increased by 16 cents, to $90.62 per barrel, while WTI crude futures had increased by 22 cents to $83.71 per barrel. Despite the crude oil prices increased in the global markets, petrol and diesel prices have remained largely stable in India as the country imports oil from whichever countries it wants including Russia.
However, the price of gasoline and diesel in India has stayed largely steady since the central government cut the tax charge. The Center reduced the excise duty on gasoline by Rs 8 per litre and on diesel by Rs 6 per litre in May of this year, which resulted in the last big decrease in fuel prices.
