Petrol and diesel prices remained consistent across the country on January 17, 2022. The state-owned oil marketing companies (OMCs) have kept the prices of both key fuels stable since November 3, 2021. The fuel rates have remained consistent after the Union government announced the excise duty cut on petrol and diesel by Rs 5 and Rs 10, respectively. Prior to the November revision, fuel rates had touched all-time record high across the country and motorists had to shell out more than Rs 100 for a litre for petrol in most cities across India.
As per the latest price notification by the OMCs, one litre of petrol in the national capital costs Rs 95.41, whereas a litre of diesel costs Rs 86.67. Similarly, in Mumbai, too, the prices remained static, as a litre of petrol costs Rs 109.98, whereas one litre of diesel is being sold at Rs 94.14.
In the capital of Tamil Nadu, Chennai, fuel prices on Monday continue to be steady. Motorists will have to pay Rs 101.40 and Rs 91.43 a litre each for petrol and diesel, respectively.
In Kolkata, a litre of petrol is priced at Rs 104.67. On Monday, the price of a litre of diesel was Rs 89.79 per litre.
While petrol can be bought at Rs 95.28 in Lucknow, diesel costs Rs 86.80 per litre.
Globally, the benchmark crude oil prices rose on Monday, as investors bet supply to remain tight due to restrained output from major producers, Reuters reported. Brent futures gained 42 cents, hovering at $86.48 a barrel by 0022 GMT, while the WTI was trading at $84.44 a barrel up 62 cents.
