Did you know you can receive the current fuel prices in different parts of the country on your mobile? State-run Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) - the country's largest fuel retailer - enables users to receive information on current prices of petrol and diesel in an SMS. All you have to do is send an SMS in a particular format to the service number 9224992249. At present, oil marketing companies - such as Indian Oil - review the retail prices of petrol and diesel on a daily basis, and implement any changes with effect from 6 am. Fuel rates vary from region to region due to local taxes.
