Factors affecting petrol and diesel prices in India

Crude Oil Price: The primary raw material for the production of petrol and diesel is crude oil, and thus, its price directly affects the final cost of these fuels.

Exchange rates between Indian Rupee and US Dollar: As a major importer of crude oil, India's petrol and diesel prices are also influenced by the exchange rate between the Indian rupee and the US dollar.

Tax: Various taxes are imposed on petrol and diesel by both the central and state governments. These taxes may vary from state to state, which can significantly impact the final prices of petrol and diesel.

Cost of Refinement:

The final price of petrol and diesel is also affected by the cost of refining crude oil into these fuels. The refining process can be expensive, and refining expenses can fluctuate depending on factors such as the type of crude oil used and the efficiency of the refinery.

Demand for petrol and diesel: The demand for petrol and diesel can also affect their prices. If demand for these fuels increases, it could lead to higher prices.
