Petroleum Minister says petrol price would be cut if global crude prices continue to slip further - DC.

Petroleum Minister S. Jaipal Reddy said on Tuesday that if global crude oil prices continue to slip further, petrol price would be lowered.
"If the prices globally come down sharply and in a stable way, naturally the prices of petrol would be adjusted downwards," Reddy said.
Petrol prices have been de-regulated and now oil-marketing companies price the fuel on the retail level according to global movement of crude. This has led to sharp increases in the petrol prices.
Other fuels like diesel, kerosene and cooking gas are still under government control. The petroleum ministry had hiked prices of fuel in June as global crude oil prices shot up.
