Based on the current trends in the international markets with constantly fluctuating crude oil prices, more revisions to diesel and petrol prices in India are expected. The gap between diesel and petrol prices now stands at Rs 8.82. This could result in reduced demand for diesel powered vehicles among the Indian car buyers. Demand for diesel vehicles has been declining steadily. Add to that NGT’s current ban on diesel vehicles with engine capacity equal to or greater than 2000cc and we expect the demand to fall further. We will keep you updated about the latest diesel and petrol prices in India. Next update will happen 15 days later on August 15.
