The prices of petrol and diesel were hiked again in Delhi on Tuesday by 26 paise and 25 paise respectively, according to the Indian Oil Corporation, the country's largest fuel retailer. Fuel prices were hiked by 16 times in May.

In the national capital, a litre of petrol will cost 94.49 and a litre of diesel will cost 85.38.

In Mumbai, the petrol price changed to 100.72 per litre on Tuesday. The cost of diesel advanced to 92.69 a litre.

Fuel prices differ from state to state depending on the incidence of local taxes such as VAT and freight charges. Rajasthan levies the highest value-added tax (VAT) on petrol in the country, followed by Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra.

The price of petrol, which had already crossed the 100-mark in several cities in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra, breached the psychological barrier in Mumbai on Saturday. Tuesday's price increase was the second since then.
