Domestic fuel prices are determined broadly by the global crude oil prices and the foreign exchange rates.

International crude oil prices fell about 1 per cent on Friday on renewed concerns about the prospect of the coronavirus outbreak pinching demand, while OPEC and allied producers appeared to be in no rush to curb output.

Brent crude - the global benchmark for crude oil - tumbled as more than 2 per cent  at one point before settling down 81 cents, or 1.4 per cent, at $58.50 a barrel. 

On Thursday, the rupee slid by 10 paise to close at a more than one-month low of 71.64 against the US dollar. The financial markets remained shut the next day for Mahashivratri.
