Petrol and diesel prices in India resumed daily revision on March 22, right after the results of state assembly elections were declared. Both petrol and diesel prices have been increased by 10 per litre through 14 back to back hikes. The central government claimed the latest series of price surges for motor fuels were announced in line with the rising crude oil prices in the international market. However, despite the drop in crude prices in the international market, the price of petrol and diesel in the Indian market didn't come down. Instead, the pricing of these motor fuels remains steady for the last 12 days in a row.

Not only petrol and diesel, price of cheaper and cleaner fuel alternative CNG too has been increased multiple times in Delhi and Mumbai in the recent times, adding pressure on motorists and common people as well. While the high rate of tax in India is being blamed by the users for such a high price, the government is yet to announce any measure to reduce taxes.
