The sudden rise in fuel prices since yesterday is an indication that oil prices may be hiked further if global crude oil prices continue to maintain its good run. Experts have predicted global oil prices to stabilise around the current levels and are likely to drift upwards gradually in the year.

Supply cuts from Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and dropping US drilling activity has also contributed to the stabilisation of oil prices after it dropped nearly $30 in the last few months of 2018.

Lower oil production, however, may dent India's economy as the country would have to pay more towards oil imports, considering that the country is the third-largest importer of oil in the world.
