Oil marketing companies raised the prices of both petrol and diesel by 25 paise on the day, with the prices hitting an all-time high. In Mumbai too, fuel rates increased to a new record high of Rs 92.04 a litre on petrol and Rs 82.40 a litre on diesel.
The hike in prices is mainly owing to a higher share of excise duty.
