    Aug 8 (Reuters) - India's fuel demand in July rose 6.1%
year-on-year, but fell 5.7% from the previous month, data from
the Petroleum Planning and Analysis Cell (PPAC) of the oil
ministry showed on Monday.
    Consumption of fuel, a proxy for oil demand, totalled 17.62
million tonnes in July, down from 18.68 million tonnes in June. 
    Sales of gasoline, or petrol, were 6.8% higher from a year
earlier at 2.81 million tonnes.
    Gasoline and gas oil sales by Indian state refiners in July
fell from a month earlier as monsoon rains restricted mobility
and construction work while high inflation curtailed overall
demand for goods, per preliminary sales data. 
    Cooking gas or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) sales increased
1.7% to 2.41 million tonnes, while naphtha sales fell 6.2% to
1.14 million tonnes.
    Sales of bitumen, used for making roads, were up 1.4%, while
fuel oil use edged up 19.8% in July.
