Highlights

  • Oil prices rose for the third day on Tuesday.

  • Both WTI and Brent crude closed over 1%.

  • As of now, tight oil supply is a concern for the world.


Oil prices closed higher on Tuesday as both United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Saudi Arabia – the two leading oil producers – appeared unlikely to boost tight supplies as West looked at ways to cap Russian oil prices. The prices of oil surged for the third day and both US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) and Brent crude settled over 1% on Tuesday.

UAE energy minister clearly said that the country was producing at its maximum capacity.

Meanwhile, G7 leaders are looking at how to control surging energy prices and replace Russian oil and gas imports. G7 nations may look at a possibility of introducing a price cap on oil exports from Russia in order to stifle Moscow’s revenues.

As of now, tight oil supply continues to be a global concern. The series of muted economic data from the US has already triggered these concerns.
