    Petrol and Diesel Prices Lowered For The Thirteenth Straight Day

    International oil prices were dragged down on Monday by an increase in output from the US and Russia. US drilling activity was at its highest level since March 2015, while Russian output was also on a rise.

    An increase in US oil production has stabilized the oil prices that were on a sharp rise last month where petrol prices across India were at its all-time high, including diesel rates.

    Global oil production is mainly controlled by the OPEC (organization of petroleum exporting countries) and they had collectively withheld their outputs to avoid crude prices from falling sharply. The members include Algeria, Angola, Ecuador, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE and Venezuela.

    An unexpected crisis in oil production in Venezuela and re-imposition of tariffs by the US on Iran put the prices of the internationally traded oil prices under pressure. The increase in US and Russian production (both non-OPEC members) have eased the rates and will now also impact the decision to be taken in the scheduled OPEC meeting on 22-23 June.
