 The  most recent price increase came from the USA, where extremely cold winter weather led to logistical problems in the oil supply. In addition, there is the general trend of rising raw material prices, which is mainly due to the hope of an economic upturn as a result of progressing corona vaccinations.

A good week before the next meeting of the Opec + oil network, there is still no uniform line for future funding policy. According to a report by the Bloomberg news agency, oil giant Saudi Arabia wants to keep production constant, while second oil giant Russia wants to expand production. At the moment, Saudi Arabia in particular is helping to support prices with reduced production.
