It is the lowest in last 17 years. The price of crude oil in US' West Texas Intermediate is down by 5.3% at USD 20 per barrel. The Brent crude has come down by 6.5 per cent at USD 23 per barrel. The fall in crude oil prices has a direct bearing on the prices of petroleum products like gas, diesel and petrol.
