Fuel prices in the country are set and revised by Public Sector OMCs like Indian Oil Corporation Ltd (IOCL), Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd (HPCL), and Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd (BPCL) on a daily basis. The prices are revised on the basis of international crude oil prices in the global market and the foreign exchange rates. The fuel price also varies within the country from one state to another. This happens because fuel prices depend on several local factors that affect their price including freight charges and local taxes (VAT).
