Recently, we are seeing a lot of fluctuations in the price of petrol and diesel that is causing a lot of commotion in the entire nation. With today being the 10th consecutive day that saw a rise in the price of oil and diesel, we have seen it gone to an increase by 16 paise for petrol and 19 paise for diesel.
In Mumbai, the price of petrol has gone to Rs. 86.72, Delhi at Rs. 79.31, Chennai at Rs. 82.41 and Kolkata at Rs. 82.22. The rise in the global crude oil prices and the increasing rate of dollar, the price has gone so high. Since the prices of petrol and diesel vary from state to state due to local levies.
Congress has demanded that fuel should also be brought under the ambit of goods and services tax (GST) immediately. The rise in oil prices have given a reason for the opposition party to raise accusations against the ruling party and is leading to a lot of conflicts in politics.
