New Delhi, Oct 14: Petrol and diesel prices were raised across metros on today. Petrol now costs Rs 104.79 a litre in Delhi, up from Rs 104.44 previously. On October 14, diesel prices reached a new high of Rs 93.52 a litre.
Petrol prices in Mumbai reached a new all-time high of Rs 110.75 per litre. On May 29, the financial hub became the first city in the country to sell petrol for more than Rs 100 per litre.
In Kolkata, too, gasoline prices have risen, with a litre of petrol and diesel now costing Rs 105.43 and Rs 96.63, respectively.
People in Chennai must pay Rs 102.10 for a gallon of petrol, but this costs Rs 97.93 in Tamil Nadu's capital.
The impact of local taxes on the price of gasoline and diesel varies from state to state. State-owned fuel retailers have begun passing on the greater incidence of cost to consumers, abandoning their mild price change strategy.
