A petrol pump dealer’s profit totally depends upon a number of litres sold in a month. In case of diesel, the commission is around 1.19rs per litre (varies for every dealer) whereas for petrol the commission comes up at around 2rs per litre(varies). So for example, if a petrol pump dealer has a sale of 1.5 lakh litres of diesel and 0.5 lakh litres of petrol per month, his GROSS profit would be approx 2.79 lakh rupees. Now calculate margin in the business, dealers commission/cost of fuel=??!!!
