By Malvika Gurung -- According to a price notification released by state-owned fuel retailers, the prices of petrol and diesel were hiked for different cities across the country on October 14, after the OMCs (oil marketing companies) raised it.

About two days back, the Brent crude (the global benchmark for oil) price jumped to $84.38 per barrel, its highest in three years, as a result of OPEC+ declaring to not raise its output over 0.4 million barrels/day. Consequently, fuel prices are increasing at alarming rates.

A direct impact was seen on October 14, when OMCs hiked the prices of petrol and diesel across different cities in India, after maintaining them at stable prices for two successive days.

Post revision, the price of petrol has been hiked by 35 paise/litre and diesel by 37 paise/litre, as per the state-owned fuel retailers’ price notification.

Processing these hikes, Delhi now witnesses its highest-ever petrol and diesel prices at Rs 104.79/litre and Rs 93.52/litre, on October 14.

In the country’s financial hub, the petrol prices touched a fresh high of Rs 110.75/litre. Diesel prices also went up to Rs 101.40/litre in the city.

In Kolkata, petrol now retails at Rs 105.43/litre, while diesel at Rs 96.6/litre. In Chennai, a litre of petrol now costs Rs 102.10, while diesel, Rs 97.93.

The prices of petrol and diesel vary state-wise, depending upon the incidence of local taxes.
