With year closing approaching and with the strong people sentiment showing up at the hustings in the five states, government has not interfered with the petrol price variations. Leaving out the status as it is and allowing the world oil prices to decide on how the local pricing would go was the best option available to the government. Just keep quiet is possibly the stand now!
Whatever it is, as consumers, we are rejoicing at the fall of prices of petrol and diesel. Both the prices fell to the year lowest price across the country. Delhi at 69.79 and Chennai at 72.41 was about 7 paise down from the previous closing.
