New Delhi, May 18: The upsurge in fuel prices continued unabated on Friday as the petrol price in the national capital of Delhi hit Rs 75.61, up 29 paise from Rs 75.32 on Thursday. Diesel prices in Delhi also went up in equal measure as it breached the Rs 67-mark and stood at Rs 67.08.
The uptick is largely being seen as a fallout of escalation in global crude oil prices which went northwards of $80 per barrel.
