New Delhi: There seems to be no respite with scaling fuel prices as petrol and diesel prices were hiked once again by 80 paise a litre each on Wednesday, taking the total increase in rates in the last nine days to ₹ 5.60 per litre.
Petrol in Delhi will now cost ₹ 101.01 per litre as against ₹ 100.21 previously while diesel rates have gone up from ₹ 91.47 per litre to ₹ 92.27.
In Mumbai, petrol and diesel prices per litre reached ₹ 115.88 and ₹ 100.10 respectively after prices were hiked by 84 paise and 85 paise.
Rates have been increased across the country and vary from state to state depending upon the incidence of local taxation.
This is the ninth increase in prices since the ending of a four-and-half-month long hiatus in rate revision on March 22.
In all, petrol and diesel prices have gone up by ₹ 5.60 per litre each.
