In the international market, crude oil prices extended gains on data showing a decline in US crude inventories. A weaker dollar and expectations of stronger global economic growth has also pushed oil prices close to three-year highs of $70.
From June 16, 2018, oil marketing companies - Indian Oil, HPCL and BPCL - adopted a new system of daily fuel price revisions, effective 6 am every day. Since their shift to daily revisions, petrol prices have gone up by Rs 4.65 per litre in Delhi, Rs 4.76 per litre in Kolkata, Rs 1 per litre in Mumbai and Rs 4.27 per litre in Chennai. Diesel rates have risen by Rs 6.31 per litre, Rs 6.63 per litre, Rs 4.63 per litre and Rs 6.41 per litre respectively.
So far this year, including Thursday's revision, petrol prices have gone up by Rs 1.56-1.67 per litre in the four metros and diesel rates risen by Rs 2.61-3.03 per litre.
