After Saturday’s price revision, petrol became cheaper by 19-20 paise across major cities of the country while diesel prices came down by up to 22 paise per litre.

In the national capital Delhi, petrol is sold at Rs 70.27 as compared to Rs 70.46 on Friday and diesel is priced at Rs 64.19 as against Rs 64.39, according to data available on Indian Oil Corporation website.

Meanwhile, the rupee has also appreciated over 2 per cent against the US dollar this week. The recent fall in crude oil price and the appreciation of rupee bode well for retail fuel prices in India.
