Fuel prices were revised across the country for the fifth straight day on Saturday. The state-run Oil Marketing Companies (OMC) hiked petrol and diesel prices by 30 and 36 paise/litre respectively.
One litre of petrol in Delhi is being sold at a fresh record high of Rs 88.44. While diesel in the national capital is retailing at Rs 78.34 per litre.
Petrol and diesel prices vary from state to state, due to various taxes levied by the central government and the state government concerned. In Mumbai, fuel prices are the highest among the four metros. While petrol is retailing at Rs 94.93 per litre, diesel is retailing at Rs 85.70 in the economic capital of India.
Fuel prices are generally revised on a daily basis in line with benchmark international price and foreign exchange rates.
