Dynamic Fuel Pricing – A New Initiative for the Fuel Price Revision
Since 16 June 2017, all oil marketing companies (OMCs) – Indian Oil, Shell Oil, Bharat Petroleum and Hindustan Petroleum - have been reviewing the petrol price in Aurangabad under the new system called dynamic fuel pricing. This new system has been in use in a few advanced countries such as Japan, Russia, Australia and the United States of America (USA).

It instantly transits the variations in the currency conversion rate and crude oil prices to end customers. This is the reason why the fuel is priced differently everyday in Aurangabad.

As on 09 January 2018, US Crude was priced at $62.92 per barrel whereas Brent Crude oil was priced at $67.68 per barrel.
