In Bengaluru, the retail price of petrol is Rs 104.70 per litre while retail price of diesel is set at Rs 94.04 per litre.

Fuel prices across the country exhibit variation due to several factors including excise duty, VAT, transportation, and freight charges. International crude oil prices also influence the revision of fuel prices done by the OMCs.

The decision affected the international crude oil market with Brent futures falling $1.15, or 1.6%, to settle at $71.45 a barrel. Meanwhile, US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude also dropped by $1.16, or 1.7%, to $68.14.
