Here it can be recalled that oil companies recently hiked petrol prices by Rs 1.80 per litre to offset the fall in rupee that has made imports of crude costlier. After this increase, petrol in Delhi will cost Rs 68.64 a litre. The rates will vary in other cities according to local levies.

This is the second hike in petrol prices in less than two months and it came on a day when the food inflation rose "dangerously" to 12.21 per cent for the week ended Oct 22.
