Prior to June 16, 2017, petrol and diesel prices were revised on twice-a-month basis. The switch to the daily system of price reviews was aimed at a more rapid transmission of changes in global oil rates to the domestic consumer.

In the international market also, oil prices dipped as Iran signaled it could be won over to a small rise in OPEC crude output, likely paving the road for the producer cartel to agree a supply increase during a meeting on June 22. However prices were prevented from falling further by record refinery runs in the United states and a large decline in UScrude inventories, a sign of strong fuel demand.

Brent crude futures the international benchmark for oil prices, were at $74.55 per barrel at 6 am, down 19 cents, or 0.3 percent, from their last close.
