    International crude benchmark Brent recovered by 0.2 percent to $75.44 per barrel in morning trade after a steep fall of nearly 2 percent on Monday. WTI gained by 0.4 percent to $65.03 per barrel in the morning after it closed 1.6 percent lower at $64.75 a barrel on Monday.

    The US increased its production as per its May reports that pushed WTI much lower than Brent. The OPEC (Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries) members meet on June 22 in Vienna, will decide if the countries will increase their oil production along with Russia as concerns of a shortfall in supply from Iran and Venezuela remains. The decision will impact Indian fuel prices as the country is highly dependent on imports to meet its domestic demands.
