In all, petrol price was increased by ₹ 3.8 per litre and diesel by Rs 3.38 in that fortnight.

According to the Indian Oil website, the petrol price in Trivandrum stood at Rs 82.61 and diesel price at Rs 75.19 on Wednesday. A faux pas saw the initial announcement coming in that the prices have been cut by 60 paise while the quantum of reduction was only one paisa.

Oil companies use 15-day rolling average of Singapore gasoline prices and Arab Gulf diesel prices to arrive at daily rates and so the fall in worldwide oil rates seen in the last few days would be factored in for the revisions in the coming days, he said.
