Revision of petrol and diesel prices in India is carried out by public sector Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) like Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd (HPCL), Indian Oil Corporation Ltd (IOCL), and Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd (BPCL). The revision of fuel price is influenced by several factors including international crude oil prices and foreign exchange rates. Price of petrol and diesel also varies from state to state within the country due to local factors like state taxes, VAT (Value Added Tax), freight charges, among others.
