The price of gasoline was increased by 30 paise per liter and that of diesel by 35 paise per liter, according to a price notification from state-owned fuel retailers.

The fifth consecutive day of rising prices pushed fuel prices to a new record high.

In Mumbai, diesel now costs 100.29 rupees per liter; while in Delhi it costs Rs 92.47.
