In this October, the prices of petrol and diesel have increased every day except for the last Monday. In the 11th day of this month only, where petrol has become costlier by Rs 2.80, diesel has jumped by Rs 3.30. Today i.e. on Monday also, the government oil companies increased the price of diesel by 35 paise per liter. Petrol was also made costlier by 30 paise per litre. Petrol in Delhi on Monday reached Rs 104.44 per liter and diesel at Rs 93.18 per liter.
After continuous price hike, now petrol has crossed Rs 100 per liter mark except in one state capital. Dehradun, Chandigarh and Guwahati have also joined the list. Ranchi is the only capital city where petrol is less than Rs 100 per litre. Petrol prices are increasing by 30 paise per liter for five consecutive days. At the same time, diesel prices are increasing by 35 paise per liter.
At this time, crude oil prices have once again crossed $82. That’s why all petroleum products are getting expensive. On the one hand the demand for crude oil is increasing. On the other hand, there is no proper arrangement for its supply.
