New Delhi: There is a tremendous increase in the prices of petrol and diesel once again. On Monday, the price of diesel in Delhi was at a high of Rs 69.46, which has reached Rs 69.51 per liter on Tuesday. While the price of petrol has reached Rs 77.96 per liter. Due to the increase in prices of petrol and diesel, the continuous decline in rupee is being considered as the reason. Import of crude oil has become expensive due to the rupee fall
Explain that petrol and diesel prices in Delhi are the lowest in all Metro cities. Earlier on May 29, diesel was priced at Rs 69.31 per liter in Delhi. Petrol price in Delhi was Rs 77.96 per liter on 28th August, while in Mumbai the price of petrol has reached Rs 85.38 per liter.
It is worth noting that on August 16, the rupee had reached the lowest level at 70.32 against the dollar. After that, fuel prices are constantly increasing. According to the reports, the price of petrol has increased by 82 paise in the last 13 days, while diesel prices have increased by 79 paise.
Let me tell you that in June last year, oil companies had stopped the fuel price changes arrangement on the first and the 16th of every month. This system was applicable for the last 15 years. Oil companies now make changes in fuel prices every day. Significantly, the price of petrol and diesel in India depends on the price of crude. If there is an increase in the prices of crude in foreign countries, then there is an increase in prices of petrol and diesel.
