Petrol price on Sunday was increased by 24 paise per litre and diesel by 27 paise, pushing rates across the country to record highs and that of petrol in Mumbai to near Rs 99 a litre.
The increase led to petrol rates in Delhi climbing to Rs 92.58 per litre and diesel to Rs 83.22, according to a price notification of state-owned fuel retailers.
A litre of petrol in Mumbai after a 23 paise hike now comes for Rs 98.88 and diesel, after a 29 paise jump, is priced at Rs 90.40 per litre.
