The retail price of petrol and diesel comprise different components. Taxes imposed by central and state governments contribute lion's share among them. These components include excise duty, freight charges, VAT, dealer commission etc. Excise duty in the last two years has been increased massively, which resulted in a substantial hike in petrol and diesel prices. The price varies across states, because of different rates of VAT levied by different states.
