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.

"Every motorist driving a petrol vehicle should feel aggrieved that the price of a litre stayed the same in October when it should have fallen by more than 3p", he said.

Like petrol today, there has been a significant reduction in diesel prices across the country.
