Petrol prices rise despite the lack of propulsion
“Oil prices have remained stubbornly high, hitting nearly $ 80 a barrel last week, which is driving gasoline prices soaring even as US gasoline demand begins to struggle. Some of this is typical seasonal weakness, but the lack of demand is likely to be compounded by volatile omicron falls and Americans who are just a little reluctant to get out, “says Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy.” Also, the unrest in Kazakhstan, the 18. Largest oil producer, likely to impact oil production, while ongoing turmoil in Libya is also worrying markets and overwhelming the seasonal decline in gasoline demand, “is likely to continue to see upward pressure on oil prices.”
