Fuel Prices Cut After 12 Days In Metros Amid Festive Cheer

Petrol rates were slashed by 21 paise in Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai and by 22 paise in Chennai. Diesel rates were reduced by 11 paise across the metros.

Fuel prices were cut on Thursday, a day ahead of Dussehra, despite a surge in global crude oil prices and a fall in the value of the rupee against the US dollar. A litre of petrol was sold for Rs 82.62 in New Delhi, Rs 84.44 in Kolkata, Rs 88.08 in Mumbai, and Rs 85.88 in Chennai. Diesel was sold at the rate of Rs 75.58/litre in New Delhi, Rs 77.43/litre in Kolkata, Rs 79.24/litre in Mumbai, and Rs 79.93/litre in Chennai. The fuel rates came into effect from 6 am on Thursday.

On Wednesday, petrol was sold at the rate of Rs 82.83/litre in New Delhi, Rs 84.65/litre in Kolkata, Rs 88.29/litre in Mumbai, and 86.10/litre in Chennai. A litre of diesel was sold for Rs 75.69 in New Delhi, Rs 77.54 in Kolkata, Rs 79.35 in Mumbai, and Rs 80.04 in Chennai.

(Fuel rate cuts came even as global oil prices inched up amid the ongoing tensions over the death of a prominent Saudi journalist.)

Petrol rates were slashed by 21 paise in New Delhi, Kolkata and Mumbai and by 22 paise in Chennai. Diesel rates were reduced by 11 paise across the four metro cities.

The fuel rate cuts came even as global oil prices inched up amid the ongoing tensions over the death of a prominent Saudi journalist. US West Texas Intermediate crude for October delivery was up 12 cents, or 0.2 per cent, at $69.87 a barrel by 0413 GMT or 9:43 am IST, after falling 3 per cent in the previous session to settle below $70 for the first time in a month, according to a report by news agency Reuters.
