State-owned oil marketing companies have decided to switch over fully-market determined prices for petrol and diesel prices across the country from June 16.

After this, the domestic fuel price would change depending upon international prices and rupee’s valuation. Currently, fuel prices are revised on 1st and 16th of every month.
