Air and naval forces of the United States was ready to strike back, but at the last moment orders were not given.
However, speculators did not stop – they raised the price by 4%. Now the futures on Brent crude oil are $65,00 per barrel, while futures for oil shale crude oil WTI rose to $57,80.
Amid growing tensions between the US and Iran, oil prices will be positive. Now they were able to reach the highest level in a month. Major market participants are awaiting the OPEC meeting, but first it is important to the outcome of the G20 summit. In any case, the price of black gold will rise, no question about it. The question is, how long it will last.
Given the difficult situation and uncertainty in the settlement of the trade conflict between the US and China, it is difficult to say at what rate will continue to increase prices. However, in the medium term it is likely the price of $68 per barrel.
