The perpetual hike in fuel prices is primarily attributed to the soaring rates of Brent crude oil. On Monday, Brent crude oil prices for April delivery reached $60 per barrel which is the highest in a year. It is further aided by economic revival hopes and supply curbs by producer group OPEC and its partners. Rising crude prices are impacting petrol and diesel rates in India and it is expected to continue further, till the fluctuation stabilises. In fact, the Reserve Bank of India had asked the Centre to cut petroleum prices, but the government officials in the know of the development said it is highly unlikely that the Centre will reduce the excise duty.
