On Friday, petrol prices were raised by Rs 3.13 a litre and diesel by Rs 2.71, including state levies in Delhi, on the back of rising international crude rates and falling value of the rupee against the Greenback.
Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan had informed Rajyasabha recently that in Delhi the price of one litre petrol is Rs. 66.29 while in Pakistan the price is Rs. 44.05 per litre. On the other hand, petrol price in Sri Lanka is Rs. 54.75 per litre.
Well, the story doesn't end here. You may be surprised to know that there are countries where petrol price is one rupee per litre. Yes! Venezuela is a country where rate of petrol is one rupee since 1998.
