Petrol and diesel prices last saw a change on Diwali. Ever since then, oil marketing companies have refrained from revising the fuel rates. This is despite the fact that crude oil prices have continued to fluctuate in the international market. As of 8.30 am on Saturday, the rate of WTI crude oil is $70.86 per barrel, while the price of Brent crude oil is $73.52 per barrel. 

Normally, oil marketing companies fix prices based on price movements in the international market. Having said that, the three OMCs -- Indian Oil, Bharat Petroleum and Hindustan Petroleum -- did not pass on the benefit to consumers when the prices of crude oil came tumbling recently. However, fuel prices vary across the country due to the Value Added Tax levied by each state.
