    Petrol, Diesel Prices At New Record High
    In Delhi along, petrol prices jumped by a whopping 33 paisa a litre in New Delhi -- the highest since the daily price revision came into force in mid-June 2017. Diesel rates on the other hand rallied by 26 paisa, according to price available from the country's largest retailer, Indian Oil Company.

    In several states, it ay not be a peak, because these states may have lowered the value added tax on petrol and diesel.

    Petrol prices in Bangalore and diesel prices are even cheaper, given the fact that VAT has been lower in the state. Goa, boasts of one of the lowest rates for petrol and diesel.

    In India, petrol is the costliest in Mumbai where high local taxes has led a price of Rs. 84.07 per litre. Petrol has breached Rs. 80 mark in Bhopal (Rs. 81.83 a litre), Patna (Rs. 81.73), Hyderabad (Rs. 80.76) and Srinagar (Rs. 80.35), according to the price notification.

    Meanwhile, the country is overly dependent on crude oil prices, as we import almost 70 per cent of our crude requirements. Rising crude prices globally, is never good news for India.
