New Delhi: Despite the Centre announcing a Rs. 2.50 per litre reduction in the prices of fuel, common man is yet to experience any relief, as skyrocketing prices of petrol and diesel are continuing to burn holes in their pockets. Fuel prices continued the upward march on Thursday, with petrol being sold 10 paise higher at Rs 82.36 per litre, and diesel at Rs 74.62 after a 27 paise hike in New Delhi.
In the wake of increasing fuel prices, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, earlier this month, had announced a cut of Rs 2.50 per litre on both petrol and diesel prices and directed the state governments to implement the same.
In Mumbai, petrol is retailing at Rs 87.82 per litre and diesel at Rs 78.22 per litre after revisions of 9 paise and 29 paise, respectively.
