In India, oil marketing companies (OMCs) – Bharat Petroleum, Hindustan Petroleum, Indian Oil – decide fuel prices, doing so on daily basis. The rates, whether same or unchanged, are announced at 6 am each day. The practice of daily revision began in June 2017, before which these were revised every 15 days.

It must also be noted that the fuel prices vary from state-to-state. This is due to factors such as value-added tax (VAT), freight charges, local taxes, etc.
