Petrol price goes up by 75 paise; diesel by 50 paise

New Delhi, Jan. 3 : Petrol prices have been hiked by 75 paise per litre and diesel by 50 paise on Friday by Oil marketing companies.

The current price of petrol in Delhi is Rs 71.50 per litre, which will increase to Rs 72.25 per litre, after the hike.

The price of diesel will increase from Rs 53.80 a litre to Rs 54.30.

Diesel rates were increased simultaneously by 10 paise per litre due to a hike in dealer's commission.
