This is how the rate of auto fuel in the country is decided
Auto fuel prices in the country vary from state to state based on VAT and freight charges. Apart from this, the central government levies excise duty on auto fuel. Oil companies revise the rates of petrol and diesel daily based on the average price of the benchmark fuel in the international market and foreign exchange rates in the last 15 days.
Petrol and diesel prices change daily at 6 am. The new rates are applicable from 6 am onwards. However, many times the rate remains the same even on the next day. After adding excise duty, dealer commission and other things to the price of petrol and diesel, its price almost doubles.
