The petrol and diesel prices were hiked to unprecedented levels last month when new records were broken every other day. The price cut however started on May 29 when the fuel price was cut by one paisa. Since then the prices are being cut continuously.

Recently, Union oil minister Dharmendra Pradhan, on recent oil price hike, said that petroleum prices should be brought under the GST purview that will help in checking volatility in fuel prices.

"In the long run, petroleum products are bound to be included within the ambit of the GST regime ... It is only a matter of time. It will immensely help in containing prices of petrol and diesel," Pradhan told reporters on Thursday.

The state-owned oil companies - Indian Oil Corporation, Bharat Petroleum Corporation (BPCL) and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation (HPCL) - in June last year dumped the 15-year old practice of revising rates on the 1st and 16th of every month . Instead, they adopted a daily price revision system to instantly reflect changes in cost. Since then, prices are revised on a daily basis.
