The prices in fuel have seen a steady decline in the last few weeks. The rates, however, remain far higher than what the common man is used to paying and the government has repeatedly blamed international factors.

Fuel prices had earlier witnessed a relentless hike in the country, burning a hole in the commuter`s pocket.

Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had on October 4 announced a reduction of Rs 2.50 per litre on both petrol and diesel prices after curbing excise duty on the commodity by Rs 1.50 per litre and urged respective state governments to slash the same amount at their end.
