Friday's pricing puts rates of both fuel at near-record levels yet again. Petrol rate in Delhi had hit 101.84 back in July while reaching 107.83 in Mumbai in the same month.

What is pushing petrol and diesel rates up?

The increase in global rates is being cited as one of the reasons for the most-recent price hikes. Crude prices in the international market are at a nearly three-year high as supply disruptions remain. India imports nearly 85% of its oil needs which means fluctuations in international rates has an impact on fuel prices in the country. But what also has a big impact are taxes and levies imposed by central and state governments. And with no sign of fuel prices being brought under Goods and Services Tax (GST) ambit, there is also no sign of a respite in the offing.
