Among the other cities, petrol price in Mumbai has now gone past 106 per litre and is currently priced at 106.25 per litre. Diesel too is just 3 away to hit the three-figure price mark and will cost 97.09 per litre from today.

Bhopal remains one of the most expensive state capitals to buy petrol and diesel. After Wednesday's hike, the price of a litre of petrol in the capital of Madhya Pradesh is at 108.52. Diesel price is also inching towards 100 mark and is priced at 98.30 per litre.

The hike on Wednesday is the 36th increase in prices since May 4, when state-owned oil firms ended an 18-day hiatus in rate revision they observed during assembly elections in five states. In 36 hikes, the price of petrol and diesel have gone up by more than 9 per litre.

The prices of petrol and diesel have been going up almost every alternate day for the last few months. One of the key reasons behind the spate of fuel price hikes is attributed to the fluctuations in the global crude oil prices and foreign exchange rates. In India, the central and state-level taxes also contribute a large part that shoots the rate of fuel go up by almost double the actual price. These taxes include freight charges, excise duty, variable VAT rates by state governments, dealer commission among others.
