City Name: BANGALORE

No other city can beat Bangalore in the prices of petroleum products!
Yes We poor overtaxed mortals in Bangalore have to shell out Rs.42 change /ltr of diesel and petrol is well over Rs.65/-
And these are for regular. Speed and turbo diesel are up by another 5% at least.
Shell in Bangalore sells regular diesel for about Rs62/- and petrol @71-73/ltr.
Suresh... what is so special with SHELL that they are overcharging so much ? Will anyone opt for such pumps when it is available cheaper else where ?
Guru..it seems your are getting the cheapest diesel & petrol ..Lucky you ..(Touch wood touch wood..)
Na na mate , only diesel. Since Punjab is a state dependent on agriculture , so the Govt keeps the diesel price a bit low to reduce input costs of agri.
Petrol is a deadly 65 rs/litre here in Mohali.
But in neighbouring Chandigarh it is only 60rs/litre , so i get my bike filled up from Chandigarh
Well that's a good decision by the Govt..Even in many states where the State Tax is high, the govt can surely do something similar to keep the commodity prices in control. There are sooo much tax we are paying for petrol. Given below is a rough calculation of taxes. I am not sure how far this is accurate.
Calculations of Petrol Prices in India (Approx.)
If the cost price of petrol per litre is Rs 58.90, following is the break up of cost calculated by the government.
Basic Price: Rs 28.93
Excise duty: Rs 14.35
Education Tax: Rs 0.43
Dealer commission: Rs 1.05
VAT: Rs 5.5
Crude Oil Custom duty: Rs 1.1
Petrol Custom: Rs 1.54
Transportation Charge: Rs 6.00
Total price: Rs 58.90
So for a Rs 28.93 litre petrol at pumps, consumers in India pay Rs 29.97 tax extra.

Sounds amazing at the variations... Is this called "Unity in Diversity"??
