Petrol and diesel prices in India are subjected to change based on global crude oil prices, and it is the responsibility of India’s major oil marketing companies such as Indian Oil, Bharat Petroleum, and Hindustan Petroleum to revise these prices accordingly. Generally, if international crude oil prices rise, there will be a corresponding increase in petrol and diesel rates in India, while a decrease in crude oil prices would lead to lower fuel prices in the country. Overall, India’s fuel prices are closely tied to the fluctuations of the global crude oil market. Since 2017, oil marketing companies in India have been adjusting fuel retail prices daily at 6 am, based on the prevailing global crude oil prices. This marks a significant departure from the previous system, under which petrol and diesel prices were revised every two weeks.
