In the International market Brent Crude Oil has touched one year low of USD 59.79 per barrel. Similarly, the Indian Basket prices have also touched one year low of USD 62.49.

According to market experts of the commodity, the sharp fall in the Crude prices can be attributed to rising U.S. shale production, record output from Saudi Arabia, rising inventories and faltering demand. However, some analysts see recovery prices in the coming months and early 2019 as the OPEC is likely to go for a production cut in the next one or two months.
