Kochi: The price of petrol and diesel have increased by 48 paise per litre. This is the highest price hike in the month so far. The petrol price in Kochi has touched at Rs 109.78 per litre and the price of diesel is at Rs 103.65 per litre.
The latest increase that follows the unrelenting hike in international oil prices has pushed pump rates across the country to their highest-ever levels.
While petrol is above Rs 100-a-litre-mark in all major cities, diesel has crossed that level in more than a dozen states.
