Rising crude oil prices have pushed petrol prices to all-time highs across the country. The prices of petroleum products are based on a 15-day rolling average of international petroleum product prices.
Fuel costs vary by state due to the impact of local taxes such as VAT and freight charges. Rajasthan, for example, has the country's highest value-added tax (VAT) on petrol, followed by Madhya Pradesh. The most expensive petrol and diesel were found in Rajasthan's Sri Ganganagar district.
In India, the retail price of petroleum products is determined by world crude oil prices. Nearly 80% of India's diesel and petrol demand is imported, with the remaining 20% exported. As a result, the costs of petrol and diesel in India are mostly determined by the prices of these fuels on the international market, rather than crude oil prices.
