Petrol, diesel prices at record high levels as rates hiked again

Friday, 08 October 2021 | PTI | New Delhi

Petrol and diesel prices across the country soared to all-time high levels on Thursday as rates were hiked again in line with the spurt in international oil prices.

Petrol price was increased by 30 paise per litre and diesel by 35 paise a litre, according to a price notification of state-owned fuel retailers.

The price of petrol in Delhi rose to its highest-ever level of `103.24 a litre and to `109.25 per litre in Mumbai, the notification showed.

Diesel rates too touched a record high of `91.42 in Delhi and inched closer to the `100-a-litre mark in Mumbai. It currently costs `99.55 a litre in Mumbai. Prices differ from state to state depending on the incidence of local taxes.

The increase on Thursday pushed rates to a new record high. Petrol crossed the Rs 100-a-litre mark in Lucknow and Gandhinagar - the last of the handful of state capitals that had rates less than that. Petrol prices, which is dictated by the incidence of local taxes and freight, had already crossed the Rs 100 mark in several places in Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat.
