Fuel prices in the country are set by Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) on a daily basis. The prices are based on the fuel’s benchmark average price over the previous 15 days in the global market and the foreign exchange rates. Apart from OMCs, the fuel price also varies from state to state and this happens because of several local factors. The cost of petrol and diesel in a state depends on freight charges and local taxes (VAT).
