Petro Price hike – the real rise

If the common man is reeling under the direct hike of petrol and diesel, there is a new type of harrassment he is facing.

We are NOT talking about double digit inflation, but about the way petroleum companies are forcing the common man to pay much higher prices. Yes, allmost all the petrol bunks have stopped selling the ordinary petrol ( that costs the sky!) and instead are offering the speed, xtra versions which cost 4 to 6 rupees extra. The answer is there is NO STOCK of regular petrol.

Today, there was large scale hunting of motorists in Bangalore trying to find out the cheaper ordinary petrol – at this rate, these unwanted variants have jacked up the cost by near 10 Rupees. Something we can ill afford

Days of agitation gujjar style is not far off if the government does not wake up and ensure enough petro stocks – we should be otherwise ready for 25% inflation.

    25% of inflation.. Mohan do you remember the term “guLe hogodu”, when there was draughts in the villages the whole mass of people would migrate to some other towns/cities .. This keeps me wondering really !!

    Veena,
    🙂 Just today OPEC president warned that a barrel of crude is going to be in range of 150 to 170 USD. This means another hike of 10 RS. Welcome to cycling.
