Petrol, Diesel Price Today: Petrol price remained unchanged for three straight days on Saturday, April 9, while diesel price today also followed cue. However, petrol price remained at record high in Mumbai at Rs 120.51, as per a price notification by state owned oil marketing companies. Fuel prices were last hiked on Wednesday by 80 paise a litre each, which took the total rise in petrol and diesel prices to Rs 10 in just 17 days.

Petrol price in Delhi today was standing at Rs 105.41 per litre, while diesel was being sold at Rs 96.67 for one litre. In Mumbai, petrol was priced at Rs 120.51 per litre, while diesel price was Rs 104.77 for one litre. On the other hand, petrol price in Kolkata today was standing at Rs 115.08 per litre, and  diesel prices are retailing at Rs 99.82 per litre in the West Bengal capital. In Chennai, one litre of petrol is priced at Rs 110.89, and diesel is retailing at Rs 100.98 for one litre.

Petrol price and diesel price were kept at a freeze from November 4 last year to March 22, after which it was hiked 14 times in 17 days. This came amid a major rise in global crude oil prices prompted by the Russia Ukraine war. India imports 85 per cent of its crude oil from other countries.

The Reserve Bank of India on Friday during its bi-monthly Monetary Policy Committee meet revised upwards its retail inflation forecast to 5.7 per cent for the current financial year 2022-23, as compared with the 4.5 per cent projected earlier. “The spike in international crude oil prices since end-February poses substantial upside risk to inflation through both direct and indirect effects. Sharp increase in domestic pump prices could trigger broad-based second round price pressures,” said RBI governor Shaktikanta Das on the day.

ATF prices on Friday were increased to Rs 2,258.54 per kilolitre, or 2 per cent, to Rs 1,12,924.83 per kilolitre in Delhi. This was the seventh straight hike in jet fuel prices, that remained at all time high after the increase. ATF price has increased every fortnight since the beginning of this year.
