Oil marketing companies (OMCs) have kept the prices of petrol and diesel unchanged on Monday, May 30, 2022. The prices of petrol and diesel saw a sharp reduction last week when finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman announced that the central government under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi had decided to slash the excise duty on petrol and diesel given their exorbitant prices.
The price of petrol stood at Rs 96.72 per litre in Delhi and Rs 111.35 per litre in Mumbai, while diesel was being sold at Rs 89.62 per litre in Delhi and Rs 97.28 per litre in Mumbai.
