    why the fuck newsX is saying rise is due to sharp rise in international prices? Isnt it due to high taxes on it? didnt congress endure all time high international crude prices and still managed to keep the price in india down due to lowering the central government tax on it? cant believe Im defending fucking congress now

    Why are petrol and diesel prices rising while crude is falling? Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan explains the trend

    well, if international prices go up by some percent, versus going down by some percent - india prices should also move (in both directions, up or down, more or less) by the same quantum, no? damn liars.

    yup. crude oil prices are in public domain. anyone can check it and see trends and graphs for last couple of weeks and months to see if there is need to keep prices high temporarily to compensate for sudden spikes. just another insult on the people of this country. usually it's rs prasad who comes out with these gems.

    I think you are vastly overestimating the intelligence of the common man

    Can't believe I am missing Manmohan Singh

    I am predicting that from 2018 reversal will start so that by 2019 elections people will forget 4 yrs of price rise.

    And then after election price rise will restart with what was reversed in 2018 be re-reversed!!
