With the slowdown caused by the covid epidemic, rising petrol and diesel prices have broken the back of the common Indian. Petrol is already crossing Rs.100 in many States. In Rajasthan, diesel has also crossed the hundreds in terms of prices. There is a possibility that diesel prices may touch Rs 100 mark in other States as well.
Meanwhile, a post/message is going viral on social media which says 'Petrol will soon cost Rs 60'. Everyone will be surprised to see this post once. But in the last line of this post, the real purpose of which is understood. In fact, it is a on the rising prices of petrol. Because it says: 'Soon petrol will be for Rs. 60. But half a litre.'
That is, people are assuming that everything goes on like this, the time is not far when the price of petrol is estimated to reach Rs.120 per litre. The slight relief is that after two consecutive days of hike, the state-owned oil companies have not hiked the prices of petrol and diesel on Sunday. Earlier, petrol and diesel prices were hiked for two consecutive days on 11th and 12th June. While the price of petrol increased by 27 paise and diesel by 23 paise per litre on June 12, the price of petrol increased by 29 paise per litre and diesel by 28 paise per litre on June 11.
