India claims running out of motor fuel

35

The global rise in oil prices has also affected the economic situation in India. The country claims to be running out of motor fuel. Although this country has not imposed sanctions against Russia and is friendly to us, it also suffers from big problems. Many Indians remember 2008. Then, due to rising oil prices, the Indian company RIL closed almost 1400 gas stations. This was due to the fact that the business could no longer function by selling fuel at subsidized prices.


The Indian company Reliance BP Mobility Limited operates a network of 1458 gas stations. She is trying to meet the demand of customers, but it is becoming increasingly difficult to do so. The company says there is increased demand for fuel at filling stations as customers expect higher prices and try to build up stocks of fuel so as not to buy it at high prices for at least some of the time.

As a result, some gas stations have already sold out all the fuel. The owners admit that for two or three days their filling stations are without fuel. They admit that they do not have the proper stock to sell. But the shortage of fuel, of course, affects both ordinary car owners and logistics companies and delivery services.

Since 2014, petrol and diesel prices in India have been pegged to world oil prices. However, the Indian Oil Corporation, Bharat Petroleum and a number of other major fuel suppliers have not raised gasoline and diesel prices since 2021, a policy that has cost them $2,2 billion in lost revenue.

By the way, India recently decided to buy 15 million barrels of oil from Russia, and in national currencies. The first deliveries will begin in May this year. Indian companies buy oil at a discount, and the Russian side will take care of all the logistics.

    So let them take oil from us, instead of Europe.

      Now they have hope for Russia, on such attractive terms Russia offers its oil that it is a sin to refuse it. Indians wait for our tankers in their ports.

            That's when Hungary, Serbia, China, India and Belarus begin to actually pay in yuan, rubles, rupees - that's when the dollar case will break out!
            Only this moment is approaching slowly. All the same, with an eye on the United States, our friendly countries are acting.

    India announces running out of motor fuel stocks

    The United States, because of its ambitions, is ready to put the entire world economy on its ears.

      I think with this statement India is trying to protect itself from possible US sanctions.

    Well, yes, we can sell a lot of things, but with logistics, with delivery to the consumer, all of this, there are difficulties !!!
    Just because. we do not have our own sufficient fleet to implement the tasks and projects. There will be noticeable losses, because they did not bother to create everything necessary in advance !!!
    And so, in many places ... you can’t fix it all quickly, and in the long term, everything is very questionable, under the sword of Damocles of our financial bosses / economic bloc in the government.

        Margins are much lower than in normal conditions ... so it is desirable to have everything of your own, from tanker fleet to international level insurance companies!
        But, how to act differently now, no one can offer anything worthwhile, alas, alas, time has been lost, you will have to make up for it on the go.

        Narrowing opportunities, often lead to unwanted financial losses.
        There are no altruists in China and their services will cost serious money. So sho this is our headache, alas, alas.

          The yuan is not ours ... if you take into account the graters of India and China ... then rather the payment of oil to India in yuan is a payment for China's neutrality in the conflict between Russia and Ukraine! And China is worth a lot to plant India on yuan hi

    The global rise in oil prices has also affected the economic situation in India.
    If only in one India. But for this we must say thanks to Biden and his European sixes, who can’t get enough of the sanctions against Russia. In the meantime
    India decided to buy 15 million barrels of oil from Russia, and in national currencies
    I hope more and more.

    Here is the market for the supply of our hydrocarbons in defiance of the gay Europeans and the striped ones, and it is necessary to supply not oil, but ready-made fuel, this is even more profitable.

    rocket757 (Victor), dear, I agree with you by 202%. Even the relics of the Pacific Fleet are not enough to give India a drink of our oil. With containers, we fell under the sanctions great. With tankers - also a complete plug. During Soviet times, I saw the tanker "Crimea" in Novorossiysk, it inspires. Here he is the only one from a series of ships alive, but in Vietnam. All subsequent ships, such as "Marshal Grechko" and "Boris Butoma", are quietly cut into needles. If the Navy is involved (it is unlikely that anyone from foreign companies will give us a ship for charter today because of the high insurance), then only one large tanker remains at the Pacific Fleet - the old man "Boris Butoma" pr. 1559-V. Medium tankers of the Pacific Fleet of the Russian Navy are also all of the 70s of the last century of production ...

    Russia supplies Europe with more than 50% of the consumed diesel fuel. I think it makes sense to redirect the flow of oil products (diesel, gasoline, possibly kerosene) to the Indian market. In addition, Belarusian factories that previously sent their products to Europe have now sent them to our market. We certainly have very large capacity reserves.

    India is a huge market and not only for our oil and weapons. We also need it as an exporter of medicines and other goods during the sanctions. You just have to deal with the logistics. And it won't be easy.
