People across Odisha have expressed their dissatisfaction over the continuous surge in the prices of fuel in the State.

While the petrol rate has increased by 36 paise, diesel cost has risen by 38 paise per litre in Bhubaneswar in the last 24 hours.

All major cities of Odisha have also registered petrol price above Rs 100 per litre and the rate of petrol in Malkangiri district has been recorded to be the highest in the state at Rs 114.48 per litre. Similarly, the price of diesel has touched Rs 110.86 per litre in the district.

In Steel City Rourkela, while the price of petrol has skyrocketed to Rs 110, the price of diesel has touched Rs 106.54 per litre.

In Millennium City Cuttack, the prices of petrol and diesel have registered Rs 109.25 and 105.79 per litre respectively. Sambalpur has registered Rs 109.86 per one litre of petrol and 106.16 per one litre of diesel.

People across State have expressed their resentments over the skyrocketing fuel price which is pinching the pockets of the common man. They have urged the government to check the prices.

“We are struggling to make our ends meet due to the Covid-19 imposed situation. Now, the spike in fuel prices has made us completely helpless. It has taken a sever toll on our livelihood,” said a small shop owner in Bhubaneswar.
