Diesel prices in Kolkata, Mumbai and Chennai were at Rs 72.78 per litre, Rs 74.24 per litre and Rs 73.88 a litre, touching fresh highs.
Petrol prices too inched near their all-time peak across major cities with Kolkata hitting Rs 81.23 per litre. The prices stood at Rs 85.72 a litre in Mumbai and Rs 81.35 a litre in Chennai.
With petrol and diesel prices going up by almost a rupee per litre within a fortnight, the government on Wednesday hoped that the rally in global rates is temporary and they will decline soon.
