New Delhi: Petrol and diesel prices were on Thursday cut for the second straight day.
Petrol price was cut by 21 paise per litre and diesel by 20 paise, according to a price notification of state-owned fuel retailers.
Petrol now costs Rs 90.78 per litre in Delhi and a litre of diesel comes for Rs 81.10.
Rates have been reduced across the country and vary from state to state depending on the local incidence of taxation (VAT).
Prices were reduced by 18 paise a litre on petrol and 17 on diesel in the first reduction in six months on Wednesday.
Prices which last month hit record highs including crossing Rs 100 mark in some places in Rajasthan, Maharasthra and Madhya Pradesh, had been on freeze since February-end when elections to five states including West Bengal, Assam, Tamil Nadu and Kerala were announced.
