Yes, Zinipaya, You are right. It is very unfortunate for all middle class people and they are most affected by this hike. Eventually other prices like transportation, fruits, vegetables and services provided by people will be costlier than ever before. This UPA Government has increase petrol price from almost Rs. 40 to Rs. 78 in their tenure and it is shameful for any ruling party. Petrol prices may come down if state government put VAT tax off on it. This is the only way to reduce the price of petrol.
Petrol price has something to do with change in price of dollar but dollar has nothing to do with petrol price.
