Experts say the price of petrol is skyrocketting because of the unrest in the Middle East and rising demand, especially from developing countries.
Even though prices in India are high, they are still lower than most of the European countries, where high taxes and lack of subsidies mean going to a petrol station to fill up your car can really make a dent in your wallet.
