The cost of auto fuel varies from state to state, based on local taxes (VAT) and freight expenses. Apart from that, motor fuels are subject to an excise levy imposed by the central government. The average price of benchmark fuel in the worldwide market over the previous 15 days, as well as foreign exchange rates, are used by oil marketing companies (OMCs) to revise rates of petrol and diesel on a daily basis. Crude oil prices increased globally on Friday, set for the fifth week of gains, with demand outstripping supply on forecasts that OPEC+ members will be cautious in returning more output to the market in August, according to reports.
