Vietnam's benchmark VN Index closed 0.06 percent down on Friday, erasing earlier gains as investors were concerned over possible hikes of fuel prices, analysts said.
Stocks of PetroVietnam Gas Corp, the country's top listed firm by market capitalisation, dropped 0.76 percent to 65,500 dong ($3.11) each, pulling down the index.
Earlier on Friday the index rose as sentiment became optimistic over the progress in Washington to avert a possible U.S. debt default.
"Rumours surfaced about a possibility of an unexpected sharp increase in input gas price in Cuu Long basin, in which the worst scenario, input gas price could increase by 170 percent," SSI Securities wrote in a note to clients on Friday.
