Currently, the domestic petrol and diesel prices are reviewed by oil marketing companies such as state-run Indian Oil on a daily basis - a scheme adopted in June 2017. Any revisions in the current regime are implemented at the fuel pumps with effect from 6 am.

The domestic fuel prices are broadly determined by international crude oil prices and the rupee-dollar exchange rate.

Oil prices eased on Monday as scant details on the first phase of a trade deal between the United States and China undercut last week's optimism over a US-China thaw that helped to lift crude markets by 2 per cent at the end of last week.
