The union government is in talks with several oil-exporting nations on the issue of supply and demand of oils but there is no possibility of immediate decrease in prices.

On Monday, a source told news wire agency, ANI that the petroleum and natural gas ministry recently raised concerns about the issues of pricing, supply and demand of oils to the major oil-producing countries.

The source told ANI, "As crude oil prices rise internationally, the petroleum ministry has called on the energy ministries of many countries such as Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, UAE, Russia and others."
