"The daily increase would have to be higher than normal to reach the true market reflective prices for these two products", said a source in an oil marketing company, asking not to be named. With crude touching $79.47 a barrel, and the rupee down more than 6 per cent to nearly 68 against the dollar, fuel prices were bound to be affected.
