Price hike in oil prices: why and how

The fuel Price in India hit the record high three figures for the first time in the history of India. On Wednesday the retail price of regular petrol hiked by 26 paise in Rajasthan’s Sri Ganganagar and reached Rs. 100.13. While the Diesel rested at Rs. 92.13 after a hike of 27 paise. The fuel prices in India vary from state to state, City to City. It is determined after implementing state and central government taxes. So why are the prices rising like never before?  After effects of the infamous Pandemic:  Due to the then on-going Pandemic, the demand of Crude Oil (pre refined petroleum) showed a significant drop in April 2020. Which then turned to a collapse in prices of crude oil.           After Pandemic, Saudi Arabia a key oil producing country voluntarily cut its supply by about one million barrels to 8.125 million barrels of crude oil to boost the prices hence to cover the loss due to Pandemic. Resulting in Price of Crude Oil hiked by about 50%. Compared to $40/Barrel

In an explosive exposé it has been disclosed that Republic TV's Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami purportedly knew about India's plan to attack Pakistan to take the revenge of the Pulwama terror attack in advance. Additionally, he even seemed to have shared this sensitive information with former BARC chief Partho Dasgupta. From the leaked WhatsApp conversation between Arnab Goswami and Partho Dasgupta, the journalist-cum-proprietor claims to hint that "something major will be done" which will be "bigger than a normal strike". Strangely , the discussion is dated February 23, 2019, which was approximately  three days before the IAF-led airstrikes in Balakot, Pakistan. Given the nature of sensitive information discussed in the leaked WhatsApp chats, the Opposition has trained guns at the Republic TV's Editor-in-Chief and questioned his intentions. The Opposition parties are now demanding an internal inquiry into the alleged leak while military experts acr

  The Supreme Court Tuesday suspended the implementation of the three farm laws until further notice,  and set up a committee comprising experts to hear the parties and understand the ground situation. When told the farmer unions were not willing to appear before the committee, the bench said those “genuinely” interested in finding a solution would do so. The farmer unions reiterated that they will not participate in any court-ordered committee process and they would not call off their protest until the newly enacted legislations are repealed. “It is clear that the court is being misguided by various forces even in its constitution of a committee. These are people who are known for their support to the 3 Acts and have actively advocated for the same,” a statement issued by All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee (AIKSCC) said. The ruling came on a batch of petitions challenging the validity of the three farm laws that were enacted last September. A detailed order is expected l
