The last time the prices of petrol and diesel were increased on 6th April. Then petrol and diesel became costlier by 80 paise in Delhi.

Between March 22 and April 6, the prices of petrol and diesel have increased by about Rs 10 per liter. Experts say that the biggest reason behind the increase in the rate of petrol and diesel is the Russia-Ukraine war. After the war that started in February, the price of crude oil increased worldwide.

The costliest petrol in the country is Rs 123.46 per liter in Parbhani in Maharashtra, while diesel is priced at Rs 107.61 per liter in Chittoor, Andhra Pradesh. At the same time, the cheapest petrol in Port Blair is Rs 91.45 and diesel is Rs 85.83 per liter.

Recently, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had told that the central government had reduced the excise duty on petrol and diesel, but some states are not reducing their taxes. He had said that in the interest of the nation, the states should reduce the tax.

The new prices of petrol and diesel come into effect at 6 am every day. After adding excise duty, dealer commission and many other things to the price of petrol and diesel, its price almost doubles.
