3. Currently, petrol and diesel prices are deregulated in India. The fuel prices are revised at fuel stations with effect from 6 am every day, determined broadly by global crude oil and rupee-dollar forex rates.

4. After touching a multi-year high around $80 per barrel last month, global crude oil prices are currently hovering around $76 per barrel. The rupee has also made some recovery against the US dollar. It had sunk to an 18-month low against US dollar last month.

5. India meets more than 80 per cent of its oil requirement through imports. That makes crude oil the most expensive item on the country’s import bill. Weakness in the rupee against the US dollar also puts pressure on domestic petrol and diesel prices. The rupee is down more than 4 per cent against the greenback so far this year.
