This is how the price is fixed
Petrol and diesel prices change daily, depending on what the crude prices are in the international market along with foreign exchange rates. Based on these standards, oil marketing companies (OMCs) decide the petrol rate and diesel rate daily. Indian Oil, Bharat Petroleum and Hindustan Petroleum revise petrol and diesel rates at 6 am every day. After adding excise duty, dealer’s commission and other things to the prices of petrol and diesel, the price of oil rises up to double.
Apart from this, for different prices in states, each state imposes different local sales tax or Value Added Tax (VAT) on petrol and diesel. Due to this, the rates of diesel and petrol for consumers change according to the states.
