She said it is not just the Centre which has duties on petroleum price but the states charge as well and added that 41% of revenue earned goes to states as well. She further said that it is a matter that both states and Centre should discuss as . Meanwhile, Crude prices soared to the highest level since January as the 23 nation coalition of oil producers OPEC decided to hold back on increasing supplies.
