Petrol Price Crosses Rs 100/Litre In Mumbai, People Vent Their Frustration With Funny Memes

The prices of petrol and diesel play an important role in increasing the inflation as the transportation of goods from one place to another becomes costly and the fuel prices also have a direct effect on the budget of the public. Any fluctuation in the prices of the fuel in global markets has an effect on the prices of fuel in the country and as per a report of a news channel, the prices of petrol and diesel have increased 15 times since May 4 which is certainly a new record.

The taxes that are charged by the state governments also affect the price of petrol and diesel in a state; for example – in New Delhi, the prices of petrol and diesel are Rs. 93.94/litre (after 26 paisa hike) and Rs. 84.89/litre (after 28 paisa hike), respectively but in Mumbai, the price of petrol has touched Rs. 100 mark.

This was more than enough for netizens to lose their cool and they took to the micro-blogging site Twitter to express their annoyance, frustration and despair. However, there were some who expressed themselves in a funny manner and these tweets are quite relatable:

Though we Indians have the capability to smile in the toughest times, the hike in prices of petrol and diesel will affect people adversely as many people are already finding it difficult to survive due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A number of individuals have lost their livelihood while many have to manage with limited resources due to reduction in their payment and if the prices of necessary things will keep on increasing like this, it will be difficult for people to manage.
