Fuel prices first started soaring in late March - after elections in five states - and breached the 100 mark in nearly all cities, including Bengaluru.

Petrol price in Delhi was at 105.41, while Chennai was at 110.85 per litre, while Mumbai and Kolkata had petrol prices of 120.51 and 115.12. Agra's petrol price stood at 105.03 per litre, and Ahmedabad's was at 105.08. A little bit higher was Allahabad, which priced its petrol at 105.33 per litre.
