The increase in petrol and diesel prices has been made recently in order to cope up with the international pricing of both the fuels. The increase in petrol price is INR 0.83 whereas diesel brings INR 1.26 to its cost. The new prices are INR 63.02 for the petrol and INR 51.67 for diesel in New Delhi.
The prices were maintained at a low value from quite a time now. A decrease of INR 3 in the petrol and a hike of INR 1.5 in the diesel was the last major change witnessed by the people. The prices of crude oil are changing and they may impact the society in a negative way soon.
