The OMCs revise rates of petrol and diesel daily based on the average price of benchmark fuel in the international market in the preceding 15-days, and foreign exchange rates.

Brent crude was down by 16 cents (0.2 per cent) at $71.43 a barrel by 0422 GMT, after dropping 4 cents on Wednesday. US oil fell 23 cents (0.3 per cent) to $68.36 a barrel, after rising 9 cents in the previous session, the report said.
