The City Headlines
Ludhiana, March 22
The petrol-diesel prices in Ludhiana have been increased once again. Not only in Ludhiana or Punjab, but the fuel price hike has been witnessed in different parts of the country.
Earlier, it was predicted that the petrol and diesel prices in India will increase after the Assembly elections in five states- Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Goa and Manipur.
Also, as the Ukraine Russia war is going on for almost a month now, the international crude oil prices are also increasing. That is also one of the reasons for the petrol-diesel price hike.
People may witness fuel price hike daily
Last time, the petrol prices were increased before the election schedule was announced. The state and the Centre government had reduced tax on petrol and diesel and a decrease in the price was witnessed.
However, now, the reports suggest that fuel prices may increase daily.
