Petrol prices hiked by Rs 2/L

Petrol price was on Saturday hiked by a steep Rs 2 a litre, the second increase in rates this month, as devaluation of rupee against US dollar made imports costlier. The hike, which is effective from midnight tonight, is excluding local sales tax or VAT and actual increase for consumers will be higher.
