The slight cut in prices is believed to be due to the drop in the cost of Brent crude oil to $ 63.27 per litre,, down from $ 68 per litre. That said, we still can't say if prices will be reduced further. According to some news reports, a massive cargo-container ship is stuck at the Suez Canal, further delaying other container ships in the world's busiest waterway. This is likely to lead to global crude price rise once again.
