In one of the steepest hikes ever, the government jacked up fuel prices by Rs 4 a litre for petrol and Rs 2 for diesel. This means, apart from a hike in your car-running bill, vegetables and food items, will become even costlier. We caught up with motorists to capture their reactions to the price hike.

Now citizens should prepare themselves for a hike in prices of all commodities. Bureau report – NMTV News.
