Fuel prices were further cut on fifth consecutive day across all major cities on Monday. The price of petrol was cut by 10-12 paise and that of diesel by 19-20 paise on Monday bringing relief to the consumers.

Petrol now costs Rs 74.98 a litre in Delhi, Rs 80.58 a litre in Mumbai, Rs 77.58 a litre in Kolkata and Rs 77.89 a litre in Chennai after the price cut.

Similarly, diesel costs Rs 68.26 a litre in Delhi, Rs 71.57 a litre in Mumbai, Rs 70.62 per litre in Kolkata and Rs 72.13 a litre in Chennai, according to the Indian Oil Corporation website.

The retail prices of fuel are dependent on the international crude prices and the rupee-US dollar exchange rate as India imports almost 80 per cent of its crude requirements.
