Petrol and diesel prices have lowered by almost ₹1 in the month of February. As India imports a major part of its crude products, the retail prices of petrol and diesel depend on the international crude oil prices. Another factor that has an impact on daily fuel prices is rupee-US dollar exchange.
Petrol and diesel prices are reviewed daily by oil marketing companies. However, petrol and diesel prices are set for a round of hike in April when the new BS-VI emission norms come into force.
The prices of LPG cylinders were hiked today by a steep ₹144.50 to ₹858.50 per cylinder. This was one of the steepest increases in LPG prices in over 5 years.
A non-subsidised 14.2 kg cylinder will now cost ₹858.50 in New Delhi, ₹896 in Kolkata, ₹829.50 in Mumbai and ₹881 in Chennai.
