The fuel prices in India are not under goods and service tax. While the Centre collects excise duty, the state governments collect VAT. Since VAT is different for each state, hence the pricing.

Last year, the Narendra Modi government cut central excise duty on petrol by 8 per litre and on diesel by 6 per litre, resulting in reduction of price of petrol by 9.5 per litre and of diesel by 7 per litre.
