New Delhi, Petrol and diesel prices were unchanged for the 13th consecutive day on Sunday across the four metro cities.

In the national capital, petrol was priced at ₹83.71 per litre. In the other key cities of Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata, the fuel was sold for ₹90.34, ₹86.51 and ₹85.19 a litre respectively.

Oil market companies (OMC) have gone on a wait-and-watch mode at a time when news of successful coronavirus vaccine and expectations of big pick-up in demand have kept crude on the boil with prices breaching $52 a barrel mark.
Petrol prices were very close to breaching the all-time high level of ₹84 a litre (reached on October 4, 2018) when it touched ₹83.71 a litre on December 7. But the march has been halted ever since with no further price revision.

Global crude prices have risen almost $12 a barrel in last one month to reach over $52 a barrel now. But even at this level, it is far less than than average crude price of $80.08 a barrel in October 2018 when petrol prices touched highs of ₹84 a litre in the national capital.

Diesel prices too were same as the previous levels. In Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata, diesel was sold for ₹73.87, ₹80.51, ₹79.21 and ₹77.44 per litre, respectively, all unchanged levels.
