Diesel prices touched a new record high on Wednesday, rising to as high as 74.05 per litre in Mumbai.
Diesel is mostly used in transportation of food and agricultural products and an increase in its price may lead to higher inflation.
Petrol too inched near its all-time peak with price in Kolkata hitting Rs 81.11 per litre.
