Fuel prices were slashed yet again by oil firms on Saturday albeit with a small margin. As of today, petrol costs Rs 75.93 per litre and diesel is priced at Rs 67.61 per litre in Delhi. Prices in the national capital are the lowest among all metro cities and most state capitals due to lower sales tax or VAT.
Rates of petrol were cut by 9 paise in Delhi and by 13 paise in Mumbai today, while diesel saw a reduction of 7 and 12 paise in Delhi and Mumbai, respectively. Rates are Rs 83.61 per litre for petrol and Rs 71.87 per litre for diesel in Mumbai.
fter hitting an all-time high of Rs 78.43 a litre for petrol and Rs 69.31 for diesel on May 29 in Delhi, petrol prices have dropped by Rs 2.5 a litre and diesel by Rs 1.70.
This compares to Rs 3.8 per litre hike in petrol and Rs 3.38 per litre hike in diesel rates in Delhi in the fortnight beginning May 14 when state-owned oil firms ended a 19-day pre-Karnataka poll hiatus to resume daily price revision. Read More
