Petrol, Diesel Prices Announced Today; Check Fuel Rates In Delhi, Mumbai and Other Cities

The petrol and diesel prices on Saturday, August 13, remained unchanged by the oil marketing companies (OMCs). The prices for the two major auto fuels have continued to be steady for over two months now, with Maharashtra being the only exception. The state government in Maharashtra had announced to reduce the value added tax (VAT) on the prices of petrol and diesel by Rs 5 and Rs 3 per litre, respectively, on July 15. The VAT cut is likely to put a burden of Rs. 6,000 crore on the Maharashtra government on an annual basis.

Earlier, on May 21, finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman announced a reduction in the excise duty on petrol by Rs 8 per litre and on diesel by Rs 6 per litre. The fuel prices have remained stable since then.

For the national capital on August 13, petrol and diesel prices remain the same at Rs 96.72 per litre and Rs 89.62 per litre, each. In Mumbai, the revised petrol rate is Rs 106.31 per litre while the rate of diesel is Rs 94.27 per litre. In Kolkata, petrol and diesel currently cost Rs 106.03 and Rs. 92.76, respectively, while in Chennai, petrol is being sold for Rs 102.63 and diesel at Rs 94.24.

On the global front, crude oil prices are holding at about $90 a barrel. Oil marketing companies (OMCs) revise the fuel prices on a daily basis, and, if needed, take into account several factors.
