“We are losing Rs 5.10 per litre on petrol currently,” a senior oil company official said. “With counting for Assembly elections in five states ending today, we would be approaching the government for appropriate directions on price revision.”

Oil companies revised the price on December 1, but after that they decided to increase it after the declaration of the results of UP elections. Indian Oil, Bharat Petroleum and Hindustan Petroleum together have lost over Rs 900 crore since the last revision which was done at international gasoline price (the benchmark for deciding domestic retail rates) of $ 109 per barrel.
