It is worth mentioning here the pump price of petrol and diesel in the national capital Delhi are the cheapest among all metros and most state capitals owing to lower taxes.

As per the country’s daily dynamic pricing mechanism, the fuel price is dependent on the global prices of benchmark fuel and the rupee-US dollar exchange rate as India imports 80 per cent of its crude requirements.
