Petrol-Diesel Prices: Oil prices are not stopping all over the country. Today, on Friday, August 21, the oil companies have again increased the prices of petrol.

However, there has been no change in the price of diesel for 20 consecutive days in the month of August. Petrol has become costlier by 19 paise in Delhi today. Today, the price of one liter of petrol in Delhi is Rs 81.19 and diesel is Rs 73.56 per liter. Let us know that petrol prices were stable last month.
Prices are increasing intermittently
Petrol prices did not increase in July after the increase in June. But petrol prices are increasing in August. At the same time, the price of diesel was increased 10 times last month. Diesel prices are stable in August. 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. Oil prices have either increased or remained stable.
