The latest hike is the 18th since price revision resumed after a 18-day hiatus on May 4.

Fro today, petrol in Mumbai will cost 100.98 per litre, while diesel will cost 92.99 for a litre. The national capital is also not too far behind from a three-figure petrol price. Delhi will have to shell out 94.76 per litre for petrol and 85.66 per litre for diesel from today. In Chennai, price of a litre of petrol has reached 96.92 and 90.38 for a litre of diesel. In Kolkata, the prices have been revised to 94.76 per litre for petrol and 88.51 per litre for diesel.

The recent spate of fuel price hike began a day after assembly elections culminated in five states earlier last month. Since then, petrol price has already crossed the 100-mark in several cities in Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Rajasthan.

The month of May has seen one of the steepest hikes in fuel prices across India. In all, the price of petrol and diesel were hiked 16 times in the entire month which led the price of petrol to go up by 3.83 per litre, while diesel price saw an overall hike of 4.42 per litre.

India has already seen two fuel price hikes within the first four days this month. It is likely that the trend of spiralling fuel price will continue in coming days as well.

The price revisions are decided by the state-owned oil companies like the IOC, Bharat Petroleum (BPL) and Hindustan Petroleum (HPCL) after the government deregulated the pricing of petrol in 2010 and diesel in 2014.. They revisions are usually based on the global crude oil prices and changes in the foreign exchange rates.
