Market experts say that due to the steep fall in the price of crude oil in the global market, the prices of petrol and diesel have been cut in the country, due to which the general public is relieved from the inflation of oil. Let us tell you that India imports about 84% of its crude oil, so the prices of petrol and diesel in the country depend on the price of crude oil in the international market. The havoc of coronavirus has spread from China to other countries of the world.
