Yesterday (October 15), the price of petrol was not hiked but diesel price was increased by 8 paise in Delhi.

Today is 11th consecutive day that the diesel price rose and it effectively wipes out all of the Rs 2.50 per litre cut in rates announced earlier this month through excise duty cut and oil company subsidy.

The fuel prices vary from region to region due to local taxes, as the product is excluded from the Goods and Services Tax regime. Delhi has the lowest tax rate among the four metro cities.

During the meeting, the Prime Minister emphasised on the economic challenges associated with the rising crude oil prices and sought cooperation of oil producing countries to deal with it.
