Oil marketing companies kept the retail price of petrol and diesel unchanged on Sunday to analyse the global oil price movement before making further revisions.

Accordingly, the price of petrol continues to remain at Saturday's level of Rs 100.91 a litre and diesel Rs 89.88 per litre in Delhi.

In Mumbai, the price of petrol was held unchanged at an all-time high of Rs 106.93 per litre. Diesel price also continues to be at Rs 97.46 a litre, the highest among metros.

In Chennai, petrol is priced at Rs 101.67 per litre while the price of diesel is Rs 94.39 per litre. The price of petrol in Kolkata is Rs 101.01 per litre while diesel is sold at Rs 92.97 per litre.

Petrol price was hiked by 35 paise per litre and diesel by 26 paise on Saturday. With Saturday's price hike, fuel prices have now increased on 38 days and remained unchanged on 33 days since May 1. The 38 increases have taken up petrol prices by Rs 10.51 per litre in Delhi. Similarly, diesel has increased by Rs 9.15 per litre in the national capital.

Consumers can now only expect that any further rise in fuel price is checked as OMCs start cutting the retail price of petrol and diesel over next few days to provide relief.
