Rates remained stagnant for more than four months, despite a spurt in crude oil prices amid assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Uttarakhand, Goa and Manipur.

State-run oil refiners such as Indian Oil Corp, Bharat Petroleum and Hindustan Petroleum revise fuel rates on a daily basis, taking into account crude oil prices and rupee-dollar exchange rates in international markets. Any change in fuel prices is effective from 6 am every day.

India is 85 per cent dependent on imports to meet its oil needs and domestic petrol and diesel prices are linked to international rates.

Globally, oil prices rose today after the Group of Seven (G7) countries committed to phase out Russian oil imports over time. After an early drop, Brent was last up 32 cents at $112.71, while US crude was up 19 cents to $109.96.
