Its been over a week that the fuel prices are rising. For the ninth consecutive day, the petrol and diesel prices have risen by Rs. 30 paise and Rs. 26 paise respectively. As the Government assures that it is looking up for measures to keep the prices of fuel in check, Twitterati goes wild with their opinions and criticism and we must say some of them are so hilarious that one can’t stop laughing.
Where one Twitter user sarcastically wishes “May ur happiness increase like Petrol Price, May ur sorrow fall like Indian Rupee n May ur joy fill your heart like corruption in India. (sic).”, another one comments “Every time petrol/diesel price soars, I realize why it's called 'crude' oil.”
