New Delhi: Crude oil prices declined on Monday as OPEC and other major oil producers including Russia delayed their meeting to discuss on output cuts.

Brent crude fell near to $30 per barrel during early trade on Monday. Currently, it is trading at $33.51, lower by 1.76 per cent from its previous close.

The WTI crude plunged over 3 per cent to $27.37 per barrel.

World’s leading crude oil producers were scheduled to meet on Monday to discuss output cuts, but the meeting has been postponed to April 9.

Late last week, crude prices soared, on hopes that OPEC and its allies would strike a deal to cut crude supply worldwide by at least 10 million barrels per day (bpd).
