Petrol prices rose in the range of 9 to 10 paise in the four metropolitan cities of the country on Sunday, while diesel prices remained unchanged.
In the national Capital, petrol was priced at Rs72.40 a litre, 9 paise higher than Saturday’s level.
In Kolkata and Mumbai, the price of the fuel rose by 9 paise to Rs74.48 and Rs78.03 per litre, respectively, according to data on the Indian Oil Corporation’s website. The price of petrol in Chennai increased by 10 paise to Rs75.19 a litre. The rise in fuel prices can be largely attributed to the increase in crude oil costs.
