Normal Petrol price now Rs. 138 per litre

The price of a litre of 92 Octane petrol went up by three rupees to 138 rupees from midnight Monday under a pricing formula meant to reflect costs, the Finance Ministry said.
 
Prices of three other fuels remained unchanged, according to a statement.

Although international oil prices had risen since March, the government held local administered prices last month to provide relief to consumers during the traditional new year period, it said.

There were indications international oil prices were weakening, in which case the lower prices would be passed on to consumers in the future, it said.
