Petrol Price cross Rs.100 in Assam
Petrol price hiked in many parts of Assam consecutively for 3 days

The petrol price in several District of Assam rose consecutively for 3 days. This marks the inflation rate going up in Assam. Petrol has now crossed the Rs.100 mark in many parts of Assam like the other states in India. Touching the Rs. 100 mark means the vehicle owners will now be offered less oil in return of the money they pay for it.

Price hike in terms of petrol not only effects the automobile owners but also the General public as a whole. But How?

Petrol is an essential commodity. It is the fuel for most of the vehicles. It’ll increase the cost of transportation. Transportation not only for the general public but also the goods brought from one place to another. This’ll further increase the price of other goods hence, effecting the general public either way.

Guwahati currently records Rs 99.15 for a litre of petroleum, soon expected cross the rs. 100- mark

Union Petroleum minister Hardeep Singh Puri blamed the State Government for the rise of petroleum prices because States didn’t bring prices of fuel under GST.

The central government has not made any comment regarding the consecutive rise in petrol price for over years now, despite their rigorous criticism of the Congress government before 2014. The Government has to now look up to this so that a stability can be brought as soon as possible.

Note:- State-run oil refiners such as Bharat petroleum , Indian oil and Hindustan petroleum revise the fuel rates daily , by taking into account the crude oil price in international markets, and the rupee-dollar exchange rates. any changes in petrol and diesel price are implemented with effect from 6:00 a.m. everyday.

We Hope that Prices would Reduce in the Near Future and Post Covid-19 things would get better.
