Friday was the third consecutive day when petrol and diesel prices fell with oil firms cutting rates by 6 paise and 5 paise a litre respectively. The reductions follow softening of international oil rates and the rupee gaining against the US dollar. Petrol in Delhi now costs Rs 78.29 a litre, down from Rs 78.35, according to a price notification issued by state-owned oil firms. Diesel rates have been cut to Rs 69.20 per litre from Rs 69.25.
Petrol price was yesterday cut by 7 paise a litre and diesel by 5 paise. On Wednesday rates were cut by 1 paisa each.
