Petrol and diesel prices were today hiked by 80 paise a litre each, taking the total increase in rates in the last nine days to 5.60 per litre.

Petrol in Delhi will now cost 101.01 per litre as against 100.21 previously, while diesel rates have gone up from 91.47 per litre to 92.27, according to a price notification of state fuel retailers.

In Mumbai, petrol and diesel prices per litre reached 115.88 and 100.10, respectively, after prices were hiked by 84 paise and 85 paise.

Rates have been increased across the country and vary from state to state depending upon the incidence of local taxation.

This is the ninth increase in prices since the end of a four-and-a-half-month long hiatus in rate revision on March 22.

On the first four occasions, prices were increased by 80 paise a litre, the steepest single-day rise since the daily price revision was introduced in June 2017.

In the following days, petrol prices went up by 50 paise and 30 paise a litre, while diesel rose by 55 paise and 35 paise a litre. Petrol prices were on Tuesday hiked by 80 paise a litre and diesel by 70 paise.

In all, petrol and diesel prices have gone up by 5.60 per litre each.
