In India, Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) alter petrol and diesel rates on a daily basis. This is done depending on the average price of benchmark fuel over the preceding 15 days in the global markets, as well as foreign exchange rates.

Also, fuel prices vary from state to state. This is due to the local taxes (such as VAT) and freight charges. The Union government, too, adds its own excise duty.
