Crude prices scaled up on Thursday which was supported by comments from the US Federal Reserve chairman, but gains were capped as optimism surrounding US-China trade talks faded. On December 31, petrol prices touched their lowest level of entire 2018, while diesel prices reached their lowest since March-end.

Increase in international crude oil prices is negative signs for India as it imports over 80 per cent of its total oil consumption. Last year in October, oil prices surged to relentless heights creating havoc like situation in the country but soon declined to the lowest level after the OPEC nations agreed upon squeezing production. Saudi Arabia promised to lower down its oil production to the level of 800 barrels a day.
