The last nationwide fluctuation in fuel prices was on May 21 when the Centre cut the excise duty on petrol and diesel.
Petrol and diesel prices, which are announced daily at 6 am, stayed constant in India on Monday, in sync with the year-long stable trend. On Sunday, too, fuel prices did not witness any revisions in major cities. Oil marketing companies like IOCL, HPCL and BPCL announce changes to its prices, if any, as per exchange rates, global prices, tax structures and other factors.
Another way for people to get fuel prices on their cell phone as per their region is via SMS. Indian Oil customers can type RSP and send an SMS to 9224992249, while Hindustan Petroleum customers need to type HPPRICE and send an SMS to 9222201122. Bharat Petroleum customers need to type RSP and send an SMS to 9223112222.
Oil steadied after the biggest weekly gain since early April as investors juggled signs of tightening supply and persistent demand concerns.
