In just four years the Indian government has had three high-level committees recommend how petroleum product prices should be determined. All three have shared the same general conclusions: the government should reform fuel-price subsidies and use other, more effective policies to improve the welfare of the poor. But the reality behind India's reluctance to liberalize prices is not a lack of good policy advice. It is that dealers and wholesalers can make large amounts of money out of the subsidies, and, one way or another, some of this ultimately ends up supporting politicians. The first committee was commissioned in 2006, ...

Three reasons for the urgency to hike petroleum product prices now
Why did the government choose to hike the prices of all petroleum products — including the most politically-sensitive and highly-subsidized kerosene and cooking gas — at this juncture? It must have anticipated that this decision would unite the Right and the Left, that its opponents would disrupt normal life and that sections within the ruling coalition would be unhappy. Further, the powers-that-be surely knew that the hike in petro-product prices would literally add fuel to inflationary fires that are raging, shrinking the real incomes of the poor. So why did the government decide on such an unpopular step even as ... market research, surveys and trends

The crude oil prices have finally touched $100 per barrel – a psychological barrier and a statistical inanity.

IMF Survey: Managing Surging Oil Prices in the Developing World
ess than half of a sample of 42 developing and emerging market countries fully passed through sharply higher world oil prices to retail customers in 2007. According to research by the IMF, this is much lower than in 2006, when three-quarters of the countries allowed domestic retail prices to rise. Pass-through was considerably less for net oil exporters than oil importers. This is attributable mainly to controls on domestic fuel prices and lower fuel taxes. Countries responded to world oil price increases to above $100 per barrel in 2007 by raising both explicit fuel subsidies (to 1½ percent of GDP) and implicit subsidies ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Peak Oil or Oil Bubble | LinkedIn Answers | LinkedIn
I have been reading a lot about the topic of oil prices. I think there is currently an argument that is almost in the realm of religious argument and I was curious of people's thoughts. One side of the argument I would call peak oil. This argument is that the demand is drastically outpacing supply and will continue for a long time to come so oil prices will only continue to rise. The other argument I have head is what I would call Oil Bubble. As with many of the other market bubbles (tech, mortgage, etc), speculators are building castles in the sky with the oil industry and at some point the market will correct. This ...
