Fuel prices increased

New Delhi, March 22 : For the first time since November 2, 2021, fuel prices were increased on Tuesday. Petrol and diesel prices were increased by 80 paise a litre after a status quo for 137 days. Petrol now costs Rs 96.21 per litre in Delhi, while diesel is at Rs 87.47 per litre. In Mumbai, petrol costs Rs 110.78, while diesel is at Rs 94.94 per litre. Cooking gas prices too have been increased. Domestic LPG cylinder prices would now cost more by over Rs 50 in Delhi, Mumbai and other cities with effect from Tuesday. The fuel prices were not increased for the last over 4 months ostensibly due to Assembly elections in 5 states in spite of crude oil prices increasing in the international oil market due to Russia-Ukraine war. Some of oil marketing companies had raised the bulk diesel prices by Rs 25 a litre last week. AKM ACL0843
