Petrol and diesel prices remain unchanged for second consecutive day on Tuesday. For the last two days diesel prices had maintained an upswing rise by 15 paise per litre, each on Saturday and Sunday.

Accordingly, in Delhi, petrol is priced at Rs 80.43 a litre and diesel at Rs 81.94. In Mumbai, the price of petrol is Rs 87.19 a litre and that of diesel is Rs 80.11. In Kolkata, petrol is priced at Rs 82.10 per litre, diesel was retailing at Rs 77.04 per litre. In Chennai, petrol price stood at Rs 83.63 a litre, while diesel was retailing at Rs 78.86 per litre.

The unexpected rise in diesel rates despite slower demand has put the transport sector at a big disadvantage. Meanwhile, diesel price in Delhi has put automobile companies concerned about the prospect of the sale of diesel-run cars in the country's largest car market.

The oil companies resumed the dynamic pricing system for daily revision of petrol and diesel from June 7 after keeping the fuel prices unchanged for around 82 days during the COVID-19 lockdown. Since then, while petrol prices have risen by Rs 9.17 a litre, diesel prices have risen by Rs 12.55 a litre in the national capital.
