Pocket pinch: Fuel prices hiked again across India within 19 days

Petrol price hiked by another 29 paise diesel goes past Rs 67 a litre

In the other metropolitan cities of Kolkata, Mumbai and Chennai also, petrol prices were at fresh multi-year high levels of Rs 77.65, Rs 82.79 and Rs 77.77 a litre respectively, data from the International Olympic Committee website showed. Diesel prices in Delhi have accordingly moved upwards at Rs 66.57 per litre and Rs 70.88 per litre in Mumbai. Petrol reached over 75-mark in Delhi and is selling at Rs 75.10 today in the national capital.

The politically risk-free hike not only raised questions about the so-called policy to deregulate energy prices but was also criticised by the Opposition as the worst form of trickery on the people. After a relief of 19 days, fuel prices have again started moving up in line with worldwide crude oil prices, as oil marketing companies have chose to pass on the burden to consumers after a freeze of 19 days, which started from April 24.

Fuel prices have been hiked yet again with petrol prices hiked by 15 paise on Wednesday in Delhi and Mumbai, with prices hitting ₹ 75.10 per litre of petrol in Delhi, and petrol costing ₹ 82.94 per litre in Mumbai.




Monday's change is bound to bring back worries for motorists about further increase in fuel prices in the backdrop of global crude as well as product prices firming up.

Brent crude touched an intra-day peak of $79.47 a barrel its highest since November 2014. The petrol and diesel prices in city had remained stable for 20 days till May 14.

IOC Chairman Sanjiv Singh earlier told to IANS that the dynamic pricing was suspended temporarily despite a rise in worldwide rates to avoid panic among consumers.
