Oil prices surge again

 

Oil market is showing an upswing, recovering from last week's drop amid concern about a shortage of fuel supply in the global market.
Oil prices are maintained by concerns about supply, provoked by a reduction in fuel supplies from Russia and the inability of OPEC countries to increase production up to target levels, Trading Economics writes. Meanwhile, global oil demand is recovering from the downturn caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

 

On the other hand, the active rise in interest rates by the world's leading central banks is also raising alarm among oil market participants, as this may slow down the growth of the global economy.

 

Brent crude oil futures for August on the London ICE Futures exchange amounted to $115.33  per barrel on Tuesday , which is $1.20 (1.05%) higher than the closing price of the previous session.
