India's petrol, diesel demand falls due to high prices, lockdown

Jul 18, 2020 14:36 IST

Petrol and diesel sales declined in the first half of July from the same period last month as a renewed lockdown in parts of the country and rising retail prices hit demand. India's diesel price has touched a record high of ₹81.35 a liter on Friday in New Delhi, slightly higher than that of petrol. State-refiners' diesel sales fell by 18% to 2.2 million tonnes in the first half of July from the same period in June.
