Petrol dearer by Rs 3
Diesel to cost Rs 2 more; LPG spared
New Delhi, September 6
Ending speculation, the government today announced a massive hike in petrol and diesel prices by Rs 3 and Rs 2 per litre, respectively, from midnight across the country, thus putting an additional burden of Rs 5,000 crore on consumers during the remaining months of current fiscal. However, it has kept LPG and kerosene prices untouched under the pressure of the Left and allied parties.
