The prices were last changed on Saturday when the petrol price was hiked by 24 paise per litre and diesel was raised by 15 paise in Delhi. Petrol price in the national capital stands at 91.17 per litre while that of diesel is at 81.47 on Tuesday. In Mumbai, petrol prices currently stand at 97.57, while diesel is retailing at 88.60. Fuel prices depend on the taxes levied by state as both central as well as state governments charge taxes along with the freight charges. The taxes levied by the central and the state government make up for 60 per cent of the retail selling price of petrol and over 54 per cent of diesel. Petrol and diesel prices usually get revised on a daily basis keeping in line with the benchmark international price and foreign exchange rates.
