Petrol price in India was hiked on Tuesday after over two months. Fuel prices across the country increased as international crude oil prices had climbed to a three-year high on September 28. While petrol had become expensive by up to 19 to 25 paise per litre, diesel price was up by 24 to 27 paise per litre.
Fuel prices were at all-time high in India. A litre of petrol would cost Rs 107.47 in the financial capital. In Delhi, the retail price of petrol jumped to Rs 101.39 per litre after the recent price revision. This was the first increase in petrol price after July 17, according to state-run oil companies.
