In Chennai, the price of petrol is Rs 77.61 per liter, while diesel is priced at Rs 69.79 per liter, while in Kolkata it is Rs 77.50 per liter, while diesel has been priced at Rs 68.68 per liter.

Since the start of this financial year, petrol prices have gone up by Rs 1.24-1.32 per litre across the metro cities. Oil companies in India have the mandate to carry out daily revisions in the prices of petrol and diesel. There have been many occasions in the past where a government squeezed oil prices before an important event or elections to woo voters. The near Rs 83 per litre-mark here was last seen in September 2013.

However, a global rally in crude prices pushed domestic fuel prices far higher than those levels.
