FUEL PRICES INCREASE
The cost of petrol has increased by Nu 3.2 a litre and diesel by Nu 2.5 a litre in Bhutan last week as a result of the fuel price hike in India last month.
Petrol in Thimphu now costs Nu 65.39 a litre, while a litre of diesel in Thimphu now costs Nu 63.29. This is reportedly the highest fuel price the country has experienced this year. Fuel prices have increased six times after the last drop in fuel prices since January 2018.
