Petrol and diesel rates in India are determined by a number of factors, including:

  • International crude oil prices: Crude oil is the main raw material used to produce petrol and diesel. Therefore, changes in international crude oil prices have a direct impact on petrol and diesel prices in India.

  • Central and state taxes: The central and state governments levy a number of taxes on petrol and diesel, which account for a significant portion of the retail price.

  • Refinery margins: The oil companies that refine crude oil into petrol and diesel also charge a margin for their services. This margin is also included in the retail price of petrol and diesel.

  • Foreign exchange rates: The Indian rupee value against the US dollar also plays a role in determining petrol and diesel prices. A weaker rupee means that oil companies have to pay more to import crude oil, which is reflected in higher petrol and diesel prices.

The petrol and diesel prices in India are revised on a daily basis at 6 am based on all of these factors.
