I got to know this news day before.

Will have to fill tank full tomorrow, As here in Bangalore they start saying normal fuel is over & start filling premium one's.
A quick way to make fast bucks by [gun] petrol bunks.

This is the problem in India, strike becomes the first option for any demand. Govt. is also static, doing nothing. Suddenly the petroleum minister will come 1 day before and would declare it illegal. What the hell he is doing now.

Petroleum minister is probably sitting and farting as this time these pump walas are out of Govt. Control. In India we all should know how to got black mailed by different entitities.

^Its just Rs 50 per litre in Pondy??? In Bangalore it is Rs 59!
Yes Arkin Bangalore is paying highest price for fuel in India as Govt is not axing down the service tax on fuel.
Which Delhi Govt has already done.

hey guys,

just got to know that all petrol pumps across India will be going on an indefinite strike from 20 Sep 2010 onwards.

Looks like they want more commission per litre of fuel.

So guys, fill your tanks up atleast 2 days before -- am sure they might run out of fuel from 19th Sep itself.

Thanks for the info Vijay! Will have to fill up the tanks in Verna and Safari soon!

Yes its going to be very annoying. Queues outside petrol bunks will be more than ration shops. During the strike last time i had to wait an hour to fill up diesel in my car! Many bunks went dry and were closed! Petrol prices shot upto even Rs.70 a litre in Chennai during strike. People started filling fuel in extra 20 litre cans for future use. Gosh , i don want to undergo all this again!

@ Arkin Yeah Pondicherry being a UT the cost of all commodities cost less generally.
