Hike in Petrol and diesel prices

NEW DELHI: Petrol and diesel prices will increase from Monday, ending many months of a dream run for Indian consumers who gained from the steep fall in global prices, which have now started rising again. Petrol prices will go up by 82 paise a litre, while diesel will be costlier by 61 paise in Delhi. The increase in other parts of the country will be similar, but would depend on local taxes, oil industry officials said.
