Petrol and diesel rates are revised by state-run oil refiners such as Indian Oil, Bharat Petroleum, and Hindustan Petroleum on a daily basis, considering crude oil prices in the international markets and rupee-dollar exchange rates. Any changes in fuel prices are implemented with effect from 6 am every day.
Meanwhile, oil prices fell on Wednesday after an industry report showed an unexpected build-up in U.S oil inventories last week, which heightened worries about a resurgence in COVID-19 infections potentially dampening fuel demand.
