New Delhi: The rate of diesel has come down on Wednesday. Due to the reduction in the price of crude oil, the oil companies have reduced the rate of diesel by 20 paise. Due to this, the rate of diesel in Delhi has gone up to Rs 89.67 per liter. However, petrol is being sold at Rs 101.84 per liter in the national capital. Consumers are facing problems due to rising prices of many other commodities including food items.

Let us inform that the month of August has brought the country closer to reaching the pre-Covid level of auto fuel sales. This is an indication that fuel demand is improving with the general economic recovery in the country. While petrol sales have already crossed pre-covid levels for over a month, diesel sales have started to rise and are just 8 per cent lower than touching pre-covid levels by August 15.
