Fuel prices were kept unchanged for 21 consecutive days on Thursday. Earlier on November 4, the government had slashed excise duty on petrol and diesel to bring rates slightly down from the record-high levels.
In the national capital, petrol is currently sold for ₹ 103.97; while diesel rate stood at ₹ 86.67, according to Indian Oil Corporation. In Mumbai, petrol is retailed at ₹ 109.98 per litre; while diesel is being sold at ₹ 94.14 per litre.
Despite the reduction in prices, petrol rates are still above the ₹ 100 per litre mark across the four metros and several cities in the country. Among the metro cities, fuel rates are the highest in Mumbai. The rates vary across the states due to value-added tax or VAT.
Here are the petrol and diesel price across the metro cities:
