After three days of staying constant, the fuel prices in the city moved upward once again with regular petrol touching 97.17 per litre while diesel was recorded at 86.88 per litre, according to price notification of state-owned fuel retailers.

The price of premium or branded petrol, which had crossed the 100 per litre mark on February 20, further rose at 100.87 per litre, the notification stated. Previously, the rates were hiked on Tuesday when Petrol in Pune had touched 96.96 per litre and diesel at 86.72 per litre.

Maharashtra’s Parbhani town in the Marathwada region has the highest price of fuel in the state. Regular petrol reached 99.68 per litre in Parbhani and the rate of Power petrol has crossed 102 per litre. The rate of diesel in Parbhani is 89.28 per litre, as per the notification.

With the rate of fuel continuously increasing, the transporters have threatened to increase their rates. Earlier, when premium petrol breached the 100 per litre mark, transporters body proposed to increase rates by 20 per cent.

We have written to the Central government. Otherwise, we will have to give the call for a strike,” said Baba Shinde, a member of the transporter association.

According to RTI activist and president of Sajag Nagrik Manch Vivek Velankar, the rise in the prices of fuel for aeroplanes are less than the prices at which commoners are purchasing fuel.

The hike, as Velankar noted, was mostly due to higher taxes by the centre and state.
