Petrol and diesel prices may increase now
Assembly elections were going on in many states of the country for the last two months. Therefore, even after crude oil became expensive last month, there has been no increase in the price of petrol and diesel. However, after crude oil became cheaper, petrol and diesel prices were reduced in four installments. Now the prices of petrol and diesel have started increasing as soon as the elections are over.
In February this year, the price of crude oil was $ 61 per barrel, which came to $ 64.73 in March. It is currently selling at $ 68. In such a situation, the price of petrol diesel may increase further in the coming days. Petrol and diesel prices may increase by 2 to 3 rupees.
