The spree of decrement in fuel prices came after a hike on 16 straight days from May 13 to May 28. During the period, petrol price came up by Rs 10-11 per litre, where diesel rate surged by Rs 7-8.

The government is reportedly mulling over taking long-term policy measures towards keeping the fuel prices in check. While bringing petrol and diesel under GST are being mooted as potential solutions, a section of analysts have recommended a reduction in the central taxes.
