Petrol-Diesel Price Today: Covid-19 and due to the decrease in demand, even though the prices of crude are stable, there is no relief on the prices of petrol and diesel in the country. Petrol prices in some parts of the country have reached close to Rs 90 per liter. Petrol is being sold at Rs 89.89 per liter in Parbhani, Maharashtra. Explain that after keeping prices stable for a long time during the lockdown period, oil companies are constantly increasing the prices of petrol and diesel. Last month, when diesel prices were increased, petrol was stable. Petrol continues to increase this month. While consumers were hopeful that oil prices could be relieved given the Covid-19 epidemic.
On Thursday, August 20, again, oil companies have increased the price of petrol. Today, petrol in the capital Delhi has become expensive by 10 paise per liter again. Although the price of diesel is stable for the 19th consecutive day, but there has also been a significant increase in diesel in the last month. Today, the price of one liter of petrol in Delhi is Rs 81.00 and diesel is Rs 73.56 per liter.
Prices are increasing intermittently
After June, petrol prices were not increased in July and early August. But due to the outbreak of Covid-19, it increased considerably in June. At the same time, the price of diesel was increased 10 times last month. Now petrol has started picking up again. It is significant that in March and April, the crude in the international market remained at its lower levels and the government got a chance to buy crude oil cheaply. But consumers were not relieved.
