Petrol and Diesel Rate Today in Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, Mumbai, Lucknow: The petrol and diesel rates remained unchanged on 21 October 2022 (Friday), keeping the prices steady for nearly five months now. In Delhi, petrol and diesel are being sold at Rs 96.72 and Rs 89.62 per litre, respectively. Public sector OMCs including Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd (BPCL), Indian Oil Corporation Ltd (IOCL) and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd (HPCL) revise the fuel prices daily at 6 AM, in line with international benchmark prices and foreign exchange rates.

Retail petrol and diesel prices differ from state to state because of local taxes like VAT or freight charges. India’s State-owned Oil Marketing Companies have lost an estimated $6.5 billion-$7 billion on petrol and diesel sales due to a virtual freeze in retail prices between November 2021 and August 2022 and their earnings may remain weak this year as they are yet to be compensated for these losses, Moody’s Investors Service said recently.
