The price of diesel has hit a century mark for the first time in the country on Saturday as it is now sold atÂ Rs 100.05 per litre in Rajasthanâ€™s Ganganagar.
The state-run oil companies raised auto fuel rates for the 23rd time in 40 days.
The hike in auto fuel rates broke another record across the country as prices of petrol jumped by 27 paise per litre and diesel by 23 paise on Saturday.
After the hike in auto fuel rates the petrol price in Nagpur has reached to Rs 102.14 after the rise of 26 paise per litre while the diesel price is Rs 92.81 per litre up by (+0.23) June 12 which was 92.58 yesterday. Retail prices of the two fuels differ from place to place because of variations in state taxes and local levies.
