The increase in petrol rates in Delhi and Mumbai each was to the tune of 25 paise per litre, according to data from Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL). The price of diesel in the two metros was raised by 24 paise per litre and 26 per litre respectively. A rise in the crude oil prices overseas has led to the current series of hikes in domestic fuel prices, say analysts.
