Prices of mustard and sesame oils drifted lower by Rs 100 per quintal at the wholesale oils and oilseeds market today owing to slackened demand from retailers.
However, other edible and non-edible oils moved in a narrow range in scattered deals and pegged at the last levels.
Traders said sluggish demand from retailers mainly led to the decline in mustard and sesame oil prices.
