Petrol, diesel prices hiked sharply

Petrol prices hiked by Rs. 3.38/litre, diesel up by Rs. 2.67

Petrol-PricePetroleum companies today hiked and diesel prices. Petrol price was on Wednesday hiked by a steep Rs. 3.38 per litre and diesel by Rs. 2.67 a litre, reversing a two-month declining trend.

Petrol will cost Rs. 63.47 a litre in Delhi from midnight tonight, up from Rs. 60.09 a litre, said Indian Oil Corp, the nation’s largest fuel retailer.

Similarly, a litre of diesel will cost Rs 52.94 a litre as against Rs 50.27.

The hike in fuel price, necessitated by a 13 per cent rise in international oil rates in the last fortnight, comes on the back of four reductions.

Rates were last cut by Rs. 1 per litre in case of petrol and Rs. 2 in diesel on August 16. The four reductions in last two months had led to the price of petrol in Delhi coming down by Rs. 5.56 a litre and Rs. 4.92 per litre in case of diesel.

“During the current fortnight, crude oil prices in the international market have witnessed a steep increase by 13 per cent (over USD 5 per barrel) compared to previous fortnight, with a corresponding increase in the international prices of petroleum products.

“The current level of international prices warrant an increase in prices of petrol and diesel, the impact of which is being passed on to the consumers,” IOC said in a statement.

IOC and other state-owned fuel retailers, Hindustan Petroleum Corp Ltd (HPCL) and Bharat Petroleum Corp Ltd (BPCL) revise petrol and diesel price on 1st and 16th of every month based on international oil rate and foreign exchange ratio in the preceding fortnight.
