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.

Most Southeast Asian stock markets rose to more-than-two-week highs on Friday led by the Philippines as optimism over progress in Washington to avert a possible debt default boosted sentiment across the region.

President Barack Obama and Republican leaders appeared ready to end a political crisis that has shuttered much of the U.S. government and pushed the country dangerously close to a default.  

The Philippines main stock index, which gained 1.6 percent for the week, ended up 0.8 percent to a three-week high, while Singapore's Straits Times index finished 0.3 percent firmer at its highest close since Oct. 1.
Singapore shares gained 1.3 percent for the week after falling in the past two weeks.  
Thailand's main index closed 0.4 percent up at a three-week high and gained 2.1 percent in the week.  

Indonesia's Jakarta Composite Index added 0.7 percent to hit its highest levels in more than two weeks, while Malaysia ended 0.6 percent firmer at a two-week high.  

Vietnam, bucking the trend, ended 0.1 percent weaker,  erasing earlier gains as investors were concerned over possible fuel price hikes.
