Petrol, Diesel Prices Remain Unchanged On Friday

Domestic petrol and diesel prices vary from state to state due to value added tax (VAT).

Bharat Petroleum Corporation, Indian Oil Corporation, and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation – which account for the majority of petrol and diesel stations in India – align the domestic rates with global benchmarks by taking into account changes in foreign exchange levels. Due to the local taxes, crude oil prices vary in different cities across the country.

Meanwhile, oil prices fell in early trade on Friday as a spike in the number of COVID-19 infections raised fears for the global economy and near-term fuel demand, but remained on track for a second straight weekly gain amid hopes for a vaccine.


US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures dropped 40 cents, or 1.0 per cent, to $ 40.72 a barrel by 0118 GMT, having lost 0.8 per cent on Thursday. Brent crude was down 36 cents, or 0.8 per cent, at $ 43.17 a barrel, after dropping 0.6 per cent on Thursday.
