Petrol and diesel prices set new records Sunday as they continued their upward march on fall in rupee and surge in global crude oil rates.
Petrol price was Sunday raised by 12 paise a litre and diesel by 10 paise per litre, according to the price notification issued by state fuel retailers.
The increase pushed the petrol price in Delhi to Rs 80.50 per litre. Diesel rate touched its highest level of Rs 72.61 a litre.
