Price changes daily.
An official said that the process of daily changes in the price of petrol and diesel has been started again. Public sector oil companies were making changes in aircraft fuel and domestic LPG (LPG) prices at regular intervals but petrol and diesel prices remained stable from 16 March. The reason for this was the huge turmoil in the international markets over the price of crude oil. The prices stabilized soon after the government raised excise duty on petrol and diesel by Rs 3 per liter.
