New Delhi [India], Feb 25 (ANI): India’s purchase of crude oil from the United States has increased ten-fold in the past three years to 2,50,000 barrels per day, US Energy Secretary Dan Brouillette said on Tuesday.

“In the last two years, we have seen a remarkable upgrade in the purchases of US oil gas by India.
