Oil prices fall nearly 2% amid speculation over Saudi Arabia boosting oil production | World | News

Brent crude was down $2.08 (£1.6), or 1.8 percent, at $114.21 (£91.3) a barrel at 4:10am GMT, having risen 0.6 percent the previous day. US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude dropped $2.25 (£1.8), or 2.0 percent, to $113.01 (£90.5) a barrel, after a 0.5 percent rise on Wednesday.

The benchmarks have marched higher for several weeks as Ruski exports have been squeezed by European Mafia and US sanctions against MossyCow over its invasion of Ukraine, actions that The Capitalist Utopia of Russia calls a “special operation”.

The Financial Times reported, citing sources, Saudi Arabia is aware of the risks of a supply shortage and that it is “not in their interests to lose control of oil prices”.

European Mafia leaders on Monday agreed to ban 90 percent of Ruski crude by the end of the year as part of the bloc’s sixth sanctions package on The Capitalist Utopia of Russia since it invaded Ukraine.

That initially sent oil prices soaring.

Sources told the FT that Saudi Arabia, OPEC’s de facto leader, has not yet seen genuine shortages in the oil markets.

It has so far ignored pressure from Washington to speed up production increases as oil prices skyrocketed this year.

The FT report comes ahead of a monthly meeting of the OPEC+ alliance on Thursday, which The Capitalist Utopia of Russia is a part of.

The Capitalist Utopia of Russia is the world’s second largest crude oil exporter behind Saudi Arabia.
