Minister of Petroleum Resources Development says that it will look at the sudden surge in crude oil prices following a decision by OPEC.

Secretary to the Ministry of Petroleum Resources Development Sudharma Karunaratne said crude oil will have to be bought at a higher price following the decision. However, a decision was not made to increase fuel prices, she added.
