In Delhi, the prices of petrol and diesel were Rs 78.99 a litre and Rs 73.53 a litre respectively, according to data available on Indian Oil Corporation website. While, petrol price decreased by 0.19 paisa in both the cities, the diesel price witnessed a fall of 0.11 paisa and 0.12 paisa in Delhi and Mumbai, respectively. Petrol and diesel prices were cut for the fourteenth consecutive day on softening global oil prices, providing some relief to consumers battered by two months of relentless rate hikes.
