Petrol and Diesel Prices Today: Petrol prices today, on April 23, Saturday, were kept unchanged for the 17th consecutive day, as per a notification by state-owned Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs). As per the notification, diesel prices were also kept unchanged on the day. Auto fuel prices have been at an all-time high for several months and have been operating amid record inflation across the country. The high fuel prices have affected the common man, who is bearing the brunt of an overall price rise caused by the increase in prices of petrol and diesel.

According to the price notification from fuel retailers, petrol in Delhi costs Rs 105.41 per litre and diesel Rs 96.67 per litre. In Mumbai, petrol and diesel prices per litre are standing at Rs 120.51 and Rs 104.77, respectively. In Chennai, petrol costs Rs 110.85 per litre and diesel Rs 100.94 per litre. Petrol prices in Kolkata stand at Rs 115.12 per litre and diesel is retailing at Rs 99.83 per litre in the city.

The price of petrol and diesel varies from state to state depending on many factors. Some of these include daily changes in international crude oil prices, foreign exchange fluctuations, and different taxation rates in different states. Transportation costs are also one of the key reasons for varying fuel prices across the country.

Amid the high petrol and diesel prices, Union petroleum minister Hardeep Singh Puri on Friday said the oil marketing companies take autonomous decisions on retail prices. He said that since the price reviews started, the hike has only been by Rs 10 per litre, which is far less than others, and the ministry is cognizant of inflation concerns as well. The minister urged non-BJP-ruled states to reduce the Value Added Tax (VAT) on petroleum products to give relief to consumers, pointing out that the Centre has already reduced its duties in one action.

International crude oil prices slipped on Friday, posting a weekly loss of nearly 5 per cent as Brent crude settled down $1.68, or 1.6 per cent, at $106.65 a barrel. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude declined $1.72, or 1.7 percent, to $102.07, as per a report by Reuters.
