Petrol and diesel price witnessed a cut on Sunday as well. While petrol price went down 20-21 paise, diesel prices were cut by 18-19 paise in major cities across the country. Petrol in the national capital is retailing at Rs 70.07 per litre down 20 paise from Saturday’s Rs 70.27 per litre. Diesel in Delhi is sold at Rs 64.01 down by 18 paise.
On a downswing since the last two months, petrol and diesel prices could once again increase from next week onwards if the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) decides to cut supply and bring down crude oil prices in its meeting today.
