As India imports 85 per cent of its energy needs from the international market, a slight fluctuation in prices of crude oil in the international market impacts the petrol and diesel costs in the country. Experts suggest that the price of petrol and diesel will continue to surge in the Indian market in small doses.

The daily revision in fuel prices was paused on November 4 last year, which was broken on March 22, following the crude oil going upwards due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Prices are expected to see further hikes given the sharp jump in crude oil prices in the international markets. This is expected to have a cascading impact on the prices of other items as well and lead to inflationary pressure and hurt growth.
