Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) like Bharat Petroleum, Hindustan Petroleum and Indian Oil are responsible for determining the fuel prices in Gandhinagar.
The value of the US dollar against the Indian rupee is an important determining factor when it comes to the prices of fuel in India.
Crude oil in its unrefined form is a commodity of the international market. Changes in the prices of international crude oil greatly affect fuel prices in India.
Fuel dealers charge a commission from the Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs)
Central Government charges an excise duty on petrol which increases the cost to the consumer considerably.
Sales tax or Value Added Tax charged by the state government further increases prices.
The growth and development in Gandhinagar have resulted in a steady increase in the number of two-wheelers and four-wheelers in the city. This has resulted in a greater demand for fuel. Some of this demand can be met by domestic supply, while the rest of it is met by imports.

Due to differences in taxation structure between the Centre and the state governments, diesel prices in India have always remained lower than petrol prices. Further diesel as a fuel is cheaper to produce than petrol. Diesel is heavier and less volatile than petrol. This makes the process of refining diesel from crude oil a lot simpler as compared to the process of refining crude oil to make petrol.
As CNG prices rise all across India, it is hard to see how consumers can still consider it as a cheaper alternative to conventional fuel like petrol/ diesel. CNG prices are at a record high due to the increase in the prices of oil and natural gas. The city distributors have also resorted to raising prices to cover costs.
