With the increase in fuel prices, the expenditure on the common man has now increased.
The round of increase in the price of petrol and diesel started from 4th May. After the price of petrol has crossed 100, diesel has also hit a century in some cities. On the one hand, rising fuel prices are affecting the common people of the country. On the other hand, the government is blaming the rise in crude oil for the rising prices of petrol and diesel.
