Fuel Price Hike Continues, Petrol Now Nears Century Mark Pan-India
New Delhi: The fuel prices were hiked once again across the country on Friday. The oil marketing companies (OMCs) raised the price of petrol and diesel between 23-30 paisa per litre across the four metros.
Accordingly, the price of petrol increased by 27 paisa per litre to Rs 96.93 per litre and diesel by 28 paisa per litre to Rs 87.69 per litre in Delhi.
The petrol prices reached very close to the century mark all across the country.
In Mumbai, where petrol price crossed Rs 100 mark for the first time ever on May 29, the fuel price reached new high of Rs 103.08 per litre on Friday. Diesel price also increased in the city by 30 paisa per litre to reach Rs 95.14 a litre, the highest among metros.
Petrol prices in the two other metros have also reached closer to Rs 100 per litre mark and OMC officials said that if international oil prices continued to firm up, this mark could also be breached in other places by month-end.
With Friday’s price hike, fuel prices have now increased on 26 days and remained unchanged on 23 days since May 1.
