Prices of transport fuels, rose for the third consecutive day after the International Olympic Committee resumed the dynamic pricing system on Monday after a 19-day halt.

With the changes, petrol will cost Rs 110 per litre in Kathmandu Valley.

Rising crude oil, coupled with Indian government ruling out excise duty cuts and various states' being reluctant in reducing the Value-Added Tax on fuel prices, has left limited room for OMC to make any relaxation in the price of the product, especially diesel, which is now at a record high.

Petrol prices in other metros too were at a new high on Tuesday - Rs 77.65 in Kolkata, Rs 82.79 in Mumbai and Rs 77.77 in Chennai, according to Indian Oil Corporation. In some cities, diesel prices have touched a record high while that of petrol are at a 56-month peak. Since September 2013, petrol prices are at their highest level and diesel prices are also at their all-time high in Delhi. At HPCL pumps, the price of a litre of petrol is now Rs. 79.27, while for diesel it is Rs. 71.93.

This spiral in prices of transport fuels comes amid continuous gains in crude oil prices globally. Brent crude futures were trading at $78.17 per barrel on Wednesday.

IOC Chairman Sanjiv Singh earlier told to IANS that the dynamic pricing was suspended temporarily despite a rise in global rates to avoid panic among consumers.

He further said that the prices of the cooking gas (LPG) and civil aviation fuel have remained static at Rs 1,375 per cylinder and Rs 95 per litre respectively.

"The increase in petrol and diesel prices is on account of price movement of the products in the worldwide market".
