Following the daily revision in retail fuel rates, state-run oil marketing companies slashed the price of petrol by 8-9 paise but chose to increase the price of diesel by 5 across four major cities in the country on Friday (May17).
In Delhi, petrol is priced at Rs 71.10 a litre, 8 paise less than yesterday’s rate of 71.18 per litre. Diesel in the national capital is retailing at Rs 65.96, 5 paise more than Thursday’s price, as per data from Indian Oil Corporation website.

In Mumbai, citizens have to pay Rs 76.71 (8 paise decrease) for a litre of petrol while diesel costs Rs 69.11 per litre, a 5 paise jump from yesterday’s rate. Read More
