Who decides fuel prices in India?

Oil marketing companies (OMCs) – Bharat Petroleum, Hindustan Petroleum, Indian Oil – decide petrol and diesel prices. The OMCs review the rates on daily basis, a practice that began in June 2017. The rates, whether revised or unchanged, are announced at 6am each day.

Why fuel prices vary from state-to-state?

This is because of factors such as value-added tax (VAT), freight charges, local taxes, etc.
