During May 1 to 15, the sale of diesel was 33.1 lakh tonnes. Petrol sales fell 5.7 percent year-on-year to 1.3 million tonnes from June 1 to 15. Its sales fell by 3.8 percent on a month-on-month basis. Petrol and diesel sales had picked up since the second fortnight of March on increased industrial and agricultural activities. But the arrival of monsoon has brought down the temperature and diesel sales declined in the first fortnight of June due to reduced use of diesel gensets for farm irrigation and reduced consumption in tractor-trucks. Petrol consumption during June 1 to 15 was 44.2 percent higher than June 2021 in the COVID-19 pandemic and 14.6 percent higher than pre-pandemic June 1 to 15, 2019. Diesel consumption was higher by 38 per cent as compared to June 1 to 15, 2021 and by 8.8 per cent as compared to the first fortnight of June 2019.
