WTI Crude Oil recovering
WTI Crude Oil futures have been recovering this week after the poor market performance last week. Going forward, it is likely that the market will see oil prices go up, therefore raising gas prices as well. Despite the lockdowns in China suppressing oil demand, the possibility of the lockdowns being lifted the market will see the demand rise. The Russian oil embargo is likely to get tighter, which is heightening investors' concerns around the supply of oil, which is also pushing up the price.
U.S President Joe Biden's attempt at reducing prices through releasing some of the U.S Crude Reserves into the market has not made a very noticeable impact so far, the release is expected to last until November.
