In Chennai, the rate of petrol was Rs. 76.14 per litre and that of diesel Rs. 70.20 per litre.

Domestic prices of the fuels are determined broadly by the international crude oil rates and the foreign exchange (foreign) exchange rate of the rupee against the US dollar.

Crude oil prices gained over 2 per cent on Friday after Iranian media said a state-owned oil tanker was attacked in the Red Sea near Saudi Arabia, while optimism surrounding the US-China trade war lifted sentiment. Brent crude futures – the global benchmark for crude oil – rose by $1.41 – or 2.4 per cent – to end at $60.51 per barrel.

Brent crude futures recorded their biggest daily rise since September 16, the first trading day after attacks on Saudi installations knocked out more than half of the kingdom’s crude output and temporarily pushed oil prices up by about 20 per cent.

The rupee ended nearly unchanged at 71.01 against the US dollar on Friday – down 1.79 per cent against the greenback so far this year.

The price of petrol has been reduced by a total Rs. 1.10-1.22 per litre in the four metros so far this month, and the rate of diesel cut by 87-99 paise per litre.
