Published

on

This is the 29th hike in vehicle fuel prices since May 4. Petrol prices in Delhi stood at Rs 97.50 per liter and diesel at Rs 88.23 per liter with no change in fuel prices on Wednesday. Union Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan alleged that the current hike in the prices of petrol and diesel is a result of the policies of the previous UPA government. At the same time, former Congress President Rahul Gandhi took a jibe at the government on Tuesday over the increase in the prices of petrol and diesel, saying that now the prices of petroleum products will be reduced during the next elections. On the other hand, fuel retail prices in India are expected to firm up in the coming days due to rising global crude oil prices and declining inventory of the world’s largest fuel consumer – the US.
