Default Fuel Prices Hiked!

I am creating a new thread for the benefit of all members. Have already posted in the Fuel Price Thread.

From midnight tonight, petrol will be costlier by Rs. 4/- per litre and diesel will be dearer by Rs. 2/- per litre. Go tank up if you intend to do so in the next few days.

To mods, please delete this thread once it serves it purpose.

Petrol prices up by Rs. 4/- and diesel prices up by Rs. 2/-

Check this : Petrol prices up by Rs 4, diesel Rs 2

Luckily I tanked up last night. May not be much, but a penny saved is a penny earned.

Both my Petrol cars were filled up yesterday and today morning. Linea drank 28 litres and Santro 26.
Chalo, atleast some money saved, can have a ice cream with that
Scorpio is at half tank but now who will rush to petrol pump, there will be 5-6 lines of cars queued to save some bucks.

Sonia Gandhi has arranged a meeting or something so maybe we can get a 1-2 rs fall from this Rs 4 hike

I am an idiot. Yesterday went to tamilnadu but since it was late did not fill petrol. Now I have to pay almost 8 rupees more in Bangalore for a litre of petrol.
