Petrol and diesel prices differ from state to state, depending on the incidence of local taxes.

While petrol has already hit the Rs 100-a-litre mark or more in all major cities of the country, diesel has touched that level in over one-and-a-half dozen states and union territories from Jammu and Kashmir to Tamil Nadu. On October 24, West Bengal became the latest state to have the nation's most used fuel above that level. Purulia, Krishnanagar, Baharampur and Cooch Behar districts of the state had diesel above Rs 100-a-litre mark.

Petrol price has been hiked on 22 occasions since September 28, when a three-week-long hiatus in rate revision ended.

Earlier, the petrol price was increased by Rs 11.44 a litre between May 4 and July 17. The diesel rate had gone up by Rs 9.14 per litre during this period.
