The 58-day hiatus in the gasoline price review and 48-day standstill on diesel tariffs was prompted by no change in tariffs between June 30 and August 15 and a standstill 85 days between March 17 and June 6. Fuel prices vary from state to state to report due to different rates of local taxes and imposed VAT.
Bharat Petroleum Corporation, Hindustan Petroleum Corporation and Indian Oil Corporation are the three main oil marketing companies in India. National oil marketing companies review gasoline and diesel prices on a daily basis and make the necessary changes to bring oil prices in line with the global benchmark and the dollar-rupee exchange rate.
