Mumbai, Mar 29 (UNI) The rupee today opened weaker at 44.7250/7,350 per US dollar, as compared to the last close of 44.64/65 due to crude oil prices going above USD 65 per barrel in global markets, a foreign exchange (forex) dealer here said.
The crude oil price went above USD 65 per barrel in the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX), which caused rupee to open weaker.
