Petrol, Diesel prices up by 80 paise again, taking total hike by Rs 8: Highest in Maharashtra's district at Rs 120.54 per litre, check latest rates in your city here

The prices of petrol and diesel in the country have been increased fourth time in just five days. The Indian Oil Corporation Limited on Saturday hiked the fuel prices by 80 paise per litre. The spike in prices of petrol and diesel is due to the rise in the cost of raw materials because of the Russia Ukraine war.

In Delhi, the price of petrol has now gone up from Rs 97.81 per litre to Rs 98.61 whereas the diesel will now cost Rs 89.87 per litre as against Rs 89.07.

The oil companies revised the fuel prices on March 22 after a four and a half month-long hiatus and since then the company has raised the petrol and diesel prices by Rs 3.20 per litre.

This week the country has witnessed a major spike in fuel prices in a single day, 80 paise per litre, which is a steepest single-day surge since the daily price revision started in June 2017.

Despite crude oil prices rising to multi-year highs last month, reaching USD 132 per barrel, the prices of petrol and diesel were on a freeze since November 4. It was said the government was waiting for the elections to get over in five major states- Punjab, Haryana, Uttarakhand, Manipur and Goa and will increase the prices after the result day on March 10.

The oil companies did not revise the fuel prices for a record of 137 days despite the price of raw material for producing fuel reaching its peak.
