After remaining steady for a day, fuel prices were hiked for the tenth time this month on Friday, breaching all records.

In the national capital, petrol got costlier by 27 paise, while diesel rose by 28 paise, according to price notification by the oil retailers.

The latest revision took the cost of petrol in Delhi to 96.93 per litre while diesel is currently retailing at 87.69. In Mumbai, petrol is being sold at 103.08 per litre, whereas diesel has reached 95.14 per litre.

Bhopal had last month become the first state capital to breach the 100-mark in petrol prices. It was followed by Jaipur and then Mumbai. Hyderabad joined the list of the cities on Monday.

Following this, petrol is being sold at over 100 in seven States and Union Territories -- Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka and Ladakh.

Sri Ganganagar district of Rajasthan near the border with Pakistan has the costliest fuel in the country -- petrol is priced at 108.07 a litre and diesel at 100.82.

Petrol and diesel rates have been on the rise since 4 May when oil marketing companies ended their 18-day-long halt on rate revision in view of the state assembly elections.

In 26 increases since then, petrol has risen by 6.54 and diesel by 6.96 a litre.
