The price of petrol and diesel has increased in major cities across India since the government initiated the dynamic pricing system where fuel prices are upgraded every day rather than every fortnight.

The increase in price has been particularly marked in Delhi, Chennai, Mumbai and Kolkata.

Following the inception of the dynamic pricing system on June 16, the price of petrol went down for two weeks. But the prices have increased continuously since then.

Petrol price has crossed Rs 70/litre in Delhi and is approaching Rs 80/litre in Mumbai. Kolkata and Chennai, meanwhile, are paying Rs 7 more on petrol than they were paying in July.

On the other hand, the price of diesel has also risen by Rs 5 per litre since July 1.

Because the price is increasing daily and by a few paise, the extent of the hike may go unnoticed by many consumers.

But the truth of the matter is that we are now paying more for petrol and diesel than we have in almost three years.

Shouldn’t the media and the public hold our government accountable?
