Fuel prices continued to pinch the common man as petrol and diesel rates were hiked yet again on Sunday. Petrol price was increased by 50 paise a litre while diesel rate was surged by 55 paise on March 27. In the wake of rising crude oil prices amid Russia-Ukraine war, the oil marketing companies in India, resumed the revision of fuel prices on March 22, after a hiatus of over four-and-a-half month. Since then, the petrol  price went up by Rs 3.70 and diesel by Rs 3.75 per litre in just six days.

With the latest revision, a litre of petrol would cost Rs 99.11 per litre in Delhi. A litre of petrol would be available at Rs 113.88 in Mumbai, highest in any metro city. In Chennai, you would have to spend Rs 104.90 for a litre of precious auto fuel. Petrol was priced at Rs 108.53 in Kolkata. This was the fifth jump in petrol prices in the last six days.
