Crude oil futures prices declined 0.24 per cent to Rs 5,383 per barrel today in line with a weak trend in Asia.
At the Multi Commodity Exchange, crude oil for delivery in October shed Rs 13 or 0.24 per cent to Rs 5,383 per barrel with a business volume of 507 lots.
Similarly, the oil for September delivery moved down by Rs 12 or 0.22 per cent to Rs 5,350 per barrel with a turnover of 9,811 lots.
Marketmen said the fall in crude oil futures prices was due to a weak trend in Asian trade as call by the Group of Seven nations for oil producers to increase output, interrupted a crude rally fuelled by US production facility closures due to Hurricane Isaac.
