Well, not really.
Petrol prices have spiked up by Rs 1.29 per litre, whereas the dirty fuel has become dearer by 97 paise in India.
The IOC blames the current level of international product prices of petrol and diesel on the INR-USD exchange rate, which has forced the oil producers to pass on the load to the consumers.
This brings the petrol cost to a whopping 70.60 rupees in Delhi, 73.13 in Kolkata, 76.91 in Mumbai and 70.07 in Chennai. Similarly, diesel will cost 7.82 rupees in Delhi, 60.06 in Kolkata, 63.61 in Mumbai and Rs 59.47 in Chennai.
Time to take the bus or bring out the old and dirty bicycle, yes?
