Fuel prices stood constant on Wednesday after sixteen hikes in the month of June, according to price notification by the oil retailers.

In the latest increase, petrol had gotten costlier by 34-35 paise and diesel by 28-30 paise on Tuesday after a day's hiatus.

This took the rate of petrol to an all-time high of 98.81 a litre in Delhi while diesel retailed at 88.18 per litre. In Mumbai, petrol on the verge of crossing 105 and is being sold at 104.90 per litre, whereas diesel has reached 96.72 per litre.

The auto fuel is also close to breaching the psychological mark of 100 in Chennai after reaching the level in seven other state capitals. Petrol is currently being sold at 99.80 in the southern city, whereas diesel costs 93.72.

Bhopal had last month become the first state capital to cross the 100-mark in petrol prices. It was followed by Jaipur, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Bengaluru. Patna and Thiruvananthapuram saw petrol retailing above 100 last week.

The fuel now costs people in 12 states and UTs over 100 -- Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka, Jammu and Kashmir, Odisha, Ladakh, Bihar, Kerala and Tamil Nadu.

Rates of diesel, the most used fuel in the country, have crossed the 100-a-litre mark in Sri Ganganagar and Hanumangarh in Rajasthan as well in a couple of places in Odisha.

The difference in prices in states occurs on account of local taxes like VAT or freight charges.

Rajasthan levies the highest VAT on petrol and diesel in the country, followed by Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

The central and state taxes make up for 60% of the retail selling price of petrol and over 54% of diesel. Centre levies 32.90 per litre of excise duty on petrol and 31.80 a litre on diesel.
