Motorists can breathe a sigh of relief on petrol and diesel rates (fuel prices) on Saturday as fuel rates remain stable in all metros, including the country’s capital, New Delhi and Mumbai, Kolkata, and Chennai. . .
Petrol and diesel prices have been stable in the metros for the last five days, as the pump prices of auto fuels have not been changed.
Diesel prices rose by Rs 8.38 on Friday after the Delhi government’s decision to reduce VAT on the product from 30 per cent to 16.75 per cent.
The price cut made diesel cheaper than petrol in the city after more than a month. In fact, diesel is cheaper than petrol in Delhi by a wide margin between all the metros of Delhi.
Delhi was the only major city in the country where diesel prices were higher than petrol. Diesel prices first rose above petrol in Delhi last month due to uneasiness of the transport sector and fuel dealers.

Due to fear of coronaviruses, international crude oil demand is declining again. That is why there is a possibility of further fall in prices.
