The price of mustard oil has gone up by Rs. 7-8 while the price of refined oil went up by Rs. 5 respectively.

Reacting to the ongoing price hike of mustard oil a consumer said , “I bought a litre of mustard oil for Rs. 150 yesterday, but it went to Rs. 160 the next day. If this way the price goes up, we the middle-class people won’t be able to survive. We request the Assam food and civil supply Minister to look into the matter and come up with a solution as soon as possible.”
