Petrol, Diesel Prices Today Over Rs 100 in Mumbai; Check Fresh Rates In Your City

Petrol and diesel prices remained unchanged for the second day on Wednesday, December 7. This has been consistent since May this year. Since May 21 when Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman announced a reduction in excise duty on gasoline and diesel, the prices of the two main automotive fuels have remained mostly the same. The central government gave relief by reducing the price of petrol by Rs 8 per liter and diesel by Rs 6 per litre. While petrol and diesel prices have come down marginally as a result of this move, they are still more than Rs 100 apiece in major cities including Kolkata, Chennai and Hyderabad.

On December 7, petrol cost Rs 96.72 and diesel Rs 89.62 per liter in Delhi. In Mumbai, people will have to pay Rs 106.31 per liter for petrol and Rs 94.27 per liter for diesel. Petrol cost Rs 102.63 per liter and diesel Rs 94.24 per liter in Chennai. Diesel is being sold at Rs 92.76 per liter and petrol at Rs 106.03 per liter in the eastern city of Kolkata.

Before the central government implemented price stabilisation, the price of petrol and diesel used to change every day depending on the supply and demand of the fuel as well as the currency exchange rate between the Indian rupee and the US dollar.
