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 slipped on Thursday after an unexpected rise in U.S crude oil inventories and as rising Covid-19 infections threaten demand, but prices held on to most of their gains from the previous session on expectations that supplies will remain tight through year-end.

Brent crude fell 11 cents, or 0.2 per cent, to $72.12 a barrel and U.S West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude fell 6 cents, or 0.1 per cent, to $70.24 a barrel.
