Petrol prices have already crossed the 100 mark in several cities in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra in the past few days.

Oil companies took a pause on Monday, before resuming revision of fuel prices in India on Tuesday this week. While Wednesday was a relief, the second hike has taken the fuel prices to fresh highs amid slump in fuel demand.

The recent spate of hikes began on May 4, after an 18-day pause in an upward price rally. In fact, the oil companies had not raised prices since March 26, a day before elections began in five states across the country. Since January, fuel prices had shot up to record level after it was hiked on 26 occasions.
