The fee of petrol with additives has crossed the Rs 100 mark for a litre in Maharashtra’s Parbhani district on Sunday morning, an workplace bearer of a petroleum sellers’ affiliation stated.
After a 28 paise rise on Sunday morning, the per-litre fee of petrol with additives for retail sale crossed Rs 100.
Parbhani District Petrol Dealers’ Association President Amol Bhedsurkar informed PTI, “The rates of petrol with additives in Parbhani has reached to 100.16 rupees for one litre. The cost of unleaded petrol is 97.38 here.”
The value of petrol in Parbhani is one of the most expensive in Maharashtra. The value is increased resulting from longer distance of transportation.
Fuel in Parbhani comes from Manmad in the Nashik district, which is at a distance of 340 km.
“We need Rs 3,000 extra for every tanker if prices go up by 10 paise. Hence, the investment in buying fuel has also gone up,” Bhedsurkar stated.
The transportation value for gasoline stands at almost 21 paise a litre now, he added.
